I'm sorry its taken so long to rate this recipe. I have made it several times. It was very easy to make and went well with baked chicken. My super picky son - who hates all vegetables - ate two helpings. Oh and I used a 14.5 oz can of petite diced tomatoes. Thanks for posting!

My husband and I love the basic mac and cheese recipe. In fact my husband asked me to make this recipe our regular mac and cheese! I loved the tomatoes, but my husband didn't. So I made just one layer of fresh tomatoes on the top. He liked the bread crumbs so I will continue to make this with one layer of tomatoes and bread crumbs on top. Thanks for the recipe.
