“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.”

Original recipe yields 24 cups

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.

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!
