This is the first meal I ever learned to make. In fact, when I got married, this Mom’s Monday Macaroni recipe and a veggie pizza appetizer were the only things I knew how to make! My poor husband was a very good sport. To this day, he still thinks of this as one of his favourites! I think it’s probably just sentimental familiarity.
Mom’s Monday Macaroni Recipe:
- 1 Tablespoon butter
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
Sauté onion in butter and transfer to a casserole dish. Add:
- 1 1/2 cups UNCOOKED macaroni noodles
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 19 oz. can of diced tomatoes
- 1 cup water
- pepper, oregano, basil, crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
Stir. Cover and bake at 350° for 65 minutes.
