1960s Family Mac & Cheese

Submitted by: BRN2DV8

Introduction

This is the family Mac & Cheese Family recipe I grew up with. Just 3 ingredients! No one remembers the origin - I was happy to see the nutritional fat being low. The higher sodium was expected but now I use low sodium Tomato soup. This is more of a casserole. Enjoy! This is the family Mac & Cheese Family recipe I grew up with. Just 3 ingredients!

Ingredients

    16 oz elbow pasta
    Campbell's Tomato Soup - 1 can (low sodium can be used to reduce the sodium)
    4 c shredded low fat cheddar cheese

Directions

Boil pasta then pour into dish. Mix in 1 can tomato soup. Mix in 1/3 of cheese, sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top. You can eat it at this point or put it in the oven to bake. Any amt of time is good. We like the top melted and crunchy so we bake it for 25 mins.

This can also be heated in the microwave but won't get the cheezy crunch.

  • the tomato soup base gave it a very bland taste; i prefer stewed tomatoes with some seasonings (basil, oregano, cilantro, bay leaves are good examples). also, you could add zucchini, or other veggies to lower the calories per portion and increase the fiber and nutrient content. - 10/5/09

  • my family uses this same recipe only substituting canned stewed tomoatoes in place of the tomato soup. It's lower in sodium too. try it that way some time. It's delicious! - 1/4/09
