Homestyle Mac & Cheese

Homestyle Mac & Cheese

This homestyle mac & cheese is the ultimate in comfort food. Elevating plain cheese and noodles with mushrooms, onions, tomatoes and a stovetop stuffing topping, baked until golden brown. This recipe came to be after my daughter got into the cupboards and opened a box of stovetop stuffing. I had already started making noodles and a light bulb went off...I thought, hmm... I wonder if stuffing would make a good topping on macaroni. The result was this hearty macaroni dish that is definitely fit for the comfort food category. The canned tomatoes add a delicious tang while the onions, mushrooms and cheese create savory notes. The stuffing acts like the garlic bread commonly served along side pasta, but in this case is built right in for extra convenience. I hope you enjoy this super easy and random pasta dish as much as my family did.
