Recipe: Macaroni with Cheese and Tomato

Although the food combinations given are very satisfactory, a dish that is extremely appetizing to many persons may be made by combining both cheese and tomato with MACARONI. Such a nutritious combination, which is illustrated in Fig. 5, can be used as the principal dish of a heavy meal.

(Sufficient to Serve Six)

  •  1 c. MACARONI
  •  1 c. grated cheese
  •  2 qt. boiling water
  •  2 Tb. butter
  •  2 tsp. salt
  •  1/8 tsp. pepper
  •  1 1/2 c. canned tomatoes
  •  1 tsp. salt

Break the MACARONI into inch lengths and cook it until it is tender in the boiling water to which 2 teaspoonfuls of salt has been added. Put a layer of the cooked MACARONI on the bottom of a baking dish, pour one-half of the tomatoes and one-third of the cheese over it, dot with butter, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Then add another layer of MACARONI, the remainder of the tomatoes, one-third more of the cheese, butter, salt, and pepper. Finally, arrange another layer of MACARONI, put the remaining cheese and some butter on top of it, and bake the food for 1/2 hour in a moderate oven. Serve hot.
