"My family really enjoyed the macaroni and beef combination. The only thing that I changed was I omitted the canned diced tomatoes, only because I did not have any. The next time that I make this, I may add the cheese to the top a few minutes before it is done baking. I think that it melted too much during baking when I added it right away. I was expecting more cheese flavor."
