This was on the regular round up of dinners growing up and all of us still make it. It can be spiced up with chili powder or other spices. Today, long after I entered this recipe, I learned, likely, where my mother learned this. Mac n Cheese with Tomatoes was served in the Philadelphia automats during the 1920's and 1930's. Those cafeterias where you put coins in and opened a window.
