This is a simple and inexpensive version of an old-country style dish just like grandma used to bake. It really takes you back a few decades. I combine macaroni, sharp Cheddar cheese, and petite diced tomatoes with other herbs and spices for a delicious old-fashioned favorite.

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Prepare an 8 quart baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the macaroni, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink. Pour into the prepared baking dish and add the butter, Cheddar cheese, and diced tomatoes; stir.
  3. Combine the eggs, milk, cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, brown mustard, hot sauce, parsley, nutmeg, pepper, and salt in a food processor; pulse until smooth; pour over the macaroni. Sprinkle paprika over everything.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the middle is set, 45 to 50 minutes.
  5. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Made this for dinner last night and my husband and I loved it. I appreciate that Allrecipes has a calculate button as I used it on this recipe to take the 12 servings down to 6. I wanted some leftovers for lunches but didn't need 12 serving leftovers! The 2 changes I made (because it is what I had on hand) was my diced tomatoes had jalapenos in them and my cream cheese had chives in it. I think the jalapenos added a nice kick to the recipe, but it didn't make it too spicy. I froze a container for our college son. This would be a great recipe to take to a large gathering as even half a recipe took the 3 qt. baking dish to bake. Will be making this one again. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

This a a good recipe, just not the macaroni and cheese flavor I was looking for.

I love this recipe and have made it so many times I've lost track. I now add some ricotta cheese to give it a bit more creaminess, but not too much. Delish!
