I used 1 onion. This is easy to do. We didn't like the clove taste so next time I'll omit that. I added more cheese on top. It could be great to stir some cheese in the pasta and meat. Thanks Dreamer :) Made for Holiday tag game

This was super simple to prepare and provides one of those meals that reminds you of mom. I felt it could have had a little more tomatoes, next time might add more or cut back on the amount of pasta.

This is almost the same way I make mine but I add a few more different spices. But it is really delicious. I had put in more onions and I mixed a bit of the cheese in the skillet then put more on top for in the oven. I am not sure why you have 1/4 cup water listed in ingredients though. Maybe it was to be added to sauce, not sure. I didn't use it and the sauce was fine for me. Made for Think Pink Tag Oct'09 Thanks for a great recipe Dreamer

This is what my family calls total comfort food. I only made half of the amount of macaroni and doubled the amount of cheese. I mixed the cheese in with the juice from the tomatoes and water to make a nice cheesy sauce. I left out the pinch of cloves as my family doesn't care for nutmeg/cloves with their pasta. Since I mixed the cheese in with the pasta I didn't feel the need to bake it, so just served it from that point and sprinkled a little extra shredded cheese on top. Thanks for sharing a family favorite. Made for 123 tag.

This was good and fast but we thought it very dry. I think it would be better with much less macaroni. I used all the amounts as stated and really could have used about half the pasta. Love that this is fast and easy! Great fast fix meal from items that are almost always on my shelf or in my refrigerator. The pinch of cloves was an interesting touch and taste that we enjoyed. Thanks for a great recipe dreamer!

Very quick dish to put together on those busy nights. My kids did not enjoy the tomatoes - but they are kids... I liked the flavors. I topped with a mixture of cheddar and mozzerella cheese because I had a little left of both this week. Very good family dinner! Thanks Dreamer! Made for 1.2.3 Hit Wonders Apr 08 **Updated 5/10 - made it again and added some yellow corn to the mix - my kids liked it better with this added.
