Macaroni and Tomato

I am not a chef. I don't really enjoy cooking. Baking is okay, but often I end up with burnt cookies and hideous cakes.
Though we did realize recently that the top heating element in our oven isn't working. So maybe all those burnt cookies weren't my fault.

This is a Rydalch family recipe. In fact, my aunt Katie made macaroni and tomato the same night I did!
Macaroni with tomato soup, it's yummy, and easy, and babies love it. Husbands don't necessarily love it-- mine doesn't-- but it's a great to make for lunch when he can't come home, or dinner when he's out fishing late.

Here's the recipe, and it's insanely easy.

1) Cook your macaroni according to instructions and drain. I'm not going to specify an amount. I usually eyeball about 2 cups for a pretty even ratio, but some people will like more soup and some will like more noodle.
2) Add one can of tomato soup, and one can of milk. (I never use water to make tomato soup, but if you prefer it that way, you could probably substitute water)
3) Stir and serve.

3 ingredients, 3 steps.
Super delicious in the 90's,

Still delicious 22 years later!

As you may have noticed, I strip Mack down to feed him.

And he's eating out of tupperware because these are actually the leftovers, and he's having them for lunch. Why dirty an extra dish?

Chances are, you'll have to bathe your child after this scrumptious meal.

Pin It!

  1. That is hilarious! I like to cook, but even still there are nights when I just throw something together. This actually sounds yummy. My secret recipe is throwing some tomato sauce in some cottage cheese and calling it good haha.
