This is mighty good mac & cheese!! Used some Rotel tomatoes to give it a nice kick - and loved the cheesy sauce!! Nice mix of cheese. Added much more ground pepper - perfect comfort food! Thanks Jackie! :)
Pure comfort food. I made as written and it was great, but I will double the amount of tomatoes next time, as it didn't seem to have enough for us. I have used Jack cheese with cheddar, but never Gruyere and I really liked the added zing it gave it. I also used an extra sharp cheddar. (To diner524-it sounds like you got a smoked Gruyere. Find a non-smoked one and try it again. It is worth it :) )
I am not rating this, as I feel the cheese I got from the Deli wasn't the most appropriate type of gruyere cheese, as it tasted so much of a smoky flavor. Having never had gruyere cheese not sure if that is how it is supposed to taste. I made half of the pasta and sauce. I picked this recipe as I am used to making macaroni and then adding a can of diced tomatoes, cheddar cheese and salt and pepper, and thought this sounded even better than might quick version. I would definitely make this again but omit the gruyere cheese. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Made for 123 Tag.
Delicious and freezes well. Use tomatoes from the garden for a really fresh taste. Thanks for posting!
