My husband and I made this easy meal while on our honeymoon in Tahiti. The ingredients are inexpensive and it tastes great! You can substitute the rotini for any kind of noodle .

I used half and half instead cream and the results were great. I also used sharp white cheddar and the color wasn't the best the flavor was awesome. This would be great with any number of additions to make it a full meal too ( I served it with braised cube steak on top). Made for PAC spring '10.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil noodles in large pot until al dente.
  2. Drain noodles and place back in pot.
  3. While stirring, add sharp cheddar cheese and a little whipping cream at a time. You do not need to add all the whipping cream, just enough to create a smooth sauce with the cheese.
  4. Stir cheese until it is melted and sauce thickens. Stir in diced tomatoes.
  5. Serve with salad and bread on the side.
