The other day, I did this Fab 4 Meme. One of the questions was my 4 favorite foods and I had a really hard time answering that because I am really not a foody. I don’t eat food because it tastes good or whatnot, I eat usually because it is easy or convenient. I would rather not eat many a time. So, it is hard for me to think of my favorites.
Well… Macaroni and Tomatoes should have made my list though. I was eating it last night thinking why didn’t I put that in my list of favorite foods, so…I thought I would share with you the most simple and cheap dish in the whole wide world and one that I love.
Macaroni and Tomatoes Recipe…
You make elbow noodles about a cup, but up to a cup and half, boil the water you know the whole bit. Boil them up like 10 minutes. For this you don’t really want them soggy soft. Drain them off and leave them in the strainer.
You can either use fresh tomatoes or canned. If you use fresh, chop them up into salsa size pieces, so very small. If you use canned, get the ones that are petite sliced.
You put in about 2/12 cups of fresh tomatoes or one standard can of sliced ones. Put these in that pan you just took the noodles out of, put them on the heat for a few seconds.
Add about 1/4 cup of sugar and about 2 tablespoons of salt.
Add back in your noodles there, simmer for about 30 seconds.
Vavoom…. You have one of my favorite dishes. Now of course you can get fancy with this, by adding some meat or some garlic and herbs. I though like it best plain. I love tomato flavor though.
