I chose this recipe because it looked like it would be a great side dish for the Easy Steak Nuggets by Stacy Buzzell #69478. I rated it a four because the prep time and cook times were way off. It took the Macaroni 15 minutes to cook. I started it first. The cheese sauce took 20 minutes to thicken. I prepared the tomato sauce while the cheese sauce was thickening. Instead of using the whole tomatoes I use a 14-½ ounce can of stewed tomatoes Italian recipe (basil, garlic & oregano included in the can), sticking to the Italian theme. I topped the dish with grated mozzarella cheese, and baked for the 20 minute suggested time. Total time spent on this dish was 45 minutes. When I removed it from the oven it looked wonderful. It tasted as good as it looked! This one will be a keeper because there are so many different ways to prepare this dish!
