My mother made this often for my daughter and her neighbor friends when they came home from school each day. They loved it and asked their parents to call my mom for recipe. Of course, it would normally be a side dish.

  3. Stir to coat.

I ate a ton of this stuff growing up in the 50-60's! Delicious, cheap, and feeds a crowd. Ours was pretty basic, using just macaroni, canned tomatoes, margarine and only salt and pepper for seasoning. When I make it now, I do spice it up a bit with a little garlic salt and creole seasoning (my go-to seasoning) with the salt and pepper if more is needed. Will share my photo of the pot we just finished! Oh yeah, you gotta have a big ole pone of cornbread with this! :))

I made this exactly according to recipe except that I only used 1 teaspoon of seasoning salt based upon other reviews. Very good, and my family liked it.
