    ellie_'s Note:

    My mother used to make mac n' cheese with tomatoes, so when I tried this recipe which I adapted from a canned tomato ad we loved it, even though it was quite different from Mom's. It is very different from our usual mac 'n cheese (which I already posted)and very good! Note 1: When I made this recipe I wanted to use up some evaporated milk that I had in the refrigerator - which was 1/2 can - this can easily be changed to using all cream or all evaporated milk to equal 1 1/2 cups total cream/evaporated milk. Note 2: cheese--I had about 1/2 pound of smoked and about 1/2 pound of regular Cheddar--although you should use some smoked Cheddar, I think his recipe is very adaptable to use whatever cheese is on hand and my amounts of cheese may be a little off by more or less than the amount listed in the ingredients as I did not measure the cheese but used what I had on hand. Note 3: I didn't use the hot dogs or little smokies but thought they would be great in this casserole.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375-degrees F.
    2. 2
      Cook macaroni according to package directions, drain.
    3. 3
      Spray a 13 x 9 baking pan with Pam (cooking spray) or grease pan and set aside.
    4. 4
      In a large saucepan heat cream and evaporated milk (see note 1 in description), mustard, salt and pepper to boiling.
    5. 5
      Reduce heat and stir in cheese (see note 2 in description)with a whisk or a wooden spoon until melted and smooth.
    6. 6
    7. 7
      Stir in tomatoes, onions and hotdogs or little smokies(if using).
    8. 8
      Put macaroni in baking pan and pour sauce over, mixing in the cheese sauce well so all the macaroni is well covered (this can be done in a separate saucepan or bowl but by mixing in the pan there is one less dish to wash).
    9. 9
      In a small bowl mix together bread crumbs and Parmesan (or if you are making your own bread crumbs in a blender you can add the Parmesan and just whirl the bread crumbs and Parmesan in the blender -- one less dish to wash).

      Sprinkle breadcrumb/Parmesan mixture over the macaroni/cheese in the baking dish.

      Rather than use smoked cheese, I think making this, then putting it in a 225 degree smoker at full smoke for an hour and a half, would make it taste out of this world.

      This makes very generous servings. I cut the recipe in half (except for the tomatoes) and used a smoked processed cheese along with the cheddar. DH said he really enjoyed the addition of the tomatoes. I left off the hot dogs this time but I agree that they would be very good with this dish.
