Definitely unique. My 6-year-old loves it. It's pretty mild, which I like. Even my husband likes it.
Per the other reviewers' tips, I added 3/4 teaspoon of garlic powder to the cheese sauce, drained the tomatoes & sprinkled more Italian seasoning over the first layer in a sprayed crockpot. Skipped the bread crumbs. Everyone enjoyed it immensely at our fellowship buffet. Thumbs up!
This is fantastic! I changed nothing, except added chicken. Everyone loved it!
I would use stewed tomatoes instead of plain tomatoes.
It was a great meal!
This recipe was very simple to make, and uses ingredients that I always have on hand. I used penne pasta instead of the elbows, I used less mozzarella cheese on top, and sprinkled the breadcrumbs then did a quick spray of nonstick on top. My fiance and I agreed that it was lacking something. If I make it again, I would add more mozzarella cheese on top, maybe use seasoned breadcrumbs, and either add garlic or use diced tomatoes that have a flavor to them. Other than the lack of "something," this recipe was very good. Since it is just the two of us, I decreased it and made it in an 8x8 pan.
This dish was easy to put together and tasted amazing! Did make a few tweaks though, instead of tomatoes I used green chilies and also added bacon, my husband went back 3 times for more!
Made this for my sister and mom over the holidays this past Christmas. Easy to make and very creamy. Spices and tomatoes give it a different flavour to traditional mac and cheese, but still tastes great. A nice change to try once in a while.
