Recipe by DB1971

My two young daughters (4 and 6) request this frequently. I got this recipe from my mother. She used to make it for my sister and I and is still a family favorite.

My kids don't eat soup, so I thought I would use this to ease them into the idea. I didn't like the results and they wouldn't eat it until I added some sugar to the "sauce" and lots of cheese. This was enough for one of them to eat it, but the others still weren't interested. Maybe I didn't have the right ratio of water to the other ingredients (it did continue to thicken after it was done as stated previously).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown pasta in oil in large sauce pan. Add tomato sauce and fill pan 3/4 full of water. Add bouillon cubes and seasoning. When macaroni is soft, turn heat down to low and add cheese.
