I'm desperately trying to find a recipe my mom had for mac and cheese that used
a can of tomatoes instead of milk.
The recipe was on the back of a box of elbow macaroni (ie: Catelli, or some other brand).
It probably was from back in the last 70's early 80's.
Besides the tomatoes I'm pretty sure it also called for a little dry mustard and
If anyone can find this recipe for me I would be most grateful, been looking for years.
I could not find such a recipe that mentioned a particular brand of macaroni, and recipes rarely
mention a time period like 70s and 80s.
However, the below recipe fits your description.
Tomato, Macaroni and Cheese
Dash cayenne pepper
3 tbsp. butter
3 tbsp. flour
1 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 can (No. 2) tomatoes
2 c. grated cheddar cheese
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 c. cooked macaroni
1 tsp. mustard
Melt butter in saucepan, blend in flour and seasonings. Gradually add tomatoes and
cook stirring constantly until mixture thickens, add cheese and stir until completely
melted. Remove from heat, add Worcestershire and cooked macaroni. Pour into 2 quart
casserole, sprinkle with additional grated cheese if desired. Bake in hot oven (375 degrees)
for 30 to 35 minutes or until brown. Let stand 15 minutes before serving. Serves 8.
