Mac and Cheese with Tomatoes

This is a recipe my mom made years ago when I was young. It is a great combination of mac ad cheese, tomato, and spices. Give it a try and let us know what you think.

As always, there are a few variations. First you can add the spices of your choice. Garlic can be added or additional spices.

In terms of the tomatoes, you can add fresh tomatoes or canned. I like canned as it is easier. You can add a bit of extra juice too.
