My husband likes this just as it is. I like it with a meal. It goes good with ham and beans or fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy--very versatile.

This is the dish I turn to when I want "comfort food"! I don't add the oregano or the parmesan cheese and my family calls this dish "Noodles and Tomatoes". I do add a bit more butter, heck...why not? It's comfort food! I highly recommend a great book, along with this dish and a glass of ice cold milk for lunch on Saturday. Delicious!

I make this all the time. It is equally good with just the tomatoes and macaroni (no extras). Enjoy!

Surprisingly good. I made this as a vegetarian main dish, served with some scrambled eggs on the side. (Recipe 29718, Cottage Scrambled Eggs). I used diced tomatoes with green chilis, so it had a nice bite. I used whole wheat rotini pasta. My only criticism is that it was not enough for six servings as a main dish. Next time I will use the whole box of pasta.
