    Nyteglori's Note:

    When my twins were two years old I was working evenings. They loved pasta and cheese and it was easy for my hubby to fix. But by itself it is not too healthy. I devised a series of recipes based on a box (or two) of Shells and Cheese and various cans of food. The shells and cheese called for in these recipes are the kind with the cheese sauce, not the powder kind.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Prepare noodles as directed but do not add cheese yet. While noodles are cooking open cans and layer in bottom of colander. If your family is sensitive to spicy foods put the tomatoes on the bottom.
    2. 2
      Dump noodles on top of other ingredients in colander. By dumping the hot water on top of the other ingredients it heats those ingredients up. Do not rinse.
    3. 3
      Dump all back in noodle pan and add cheese sauce mixing well. Serve immediately.
