Horn & Hardart's Macaroni and Cheese ala Arthur Schwartz

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by JaniceJean

This is from Arthur Schwartz's site, The Food Maven. Please see his original posting for its history and exact instructions. I doubled the recipe as I always make a double batch. While I am not a New Yorker, and I believe I'm the only one in my family who is addicted to this recipe- I crave this and make it at least every two weeks. The tomatoes are a must.

Very good, but it was a little different from the macaroni and cheese I remember eating at the restaurant.
