Review This Recipe
This is my favorite side dish. I use a little more gren onion and mix a little cheddar cheese in with the mac and cheese, but you don't have too! Kids love this as well, it's fun to eat and they get extra vitamins from the tomato!!!
Okay if your choices are limited
I wanted to try this recipe because it looked attractive and somewhat unique. I made it according to directions, but also added a little Worcestershire sauce to the macaroni since I like things highly seasoned. The end results were okay, but nothing special. I don't think I'll try it again. If I did, I might sprinkle a tiny but of salt & pepper inside the tomatoes before filling them.
