As the name suggests, this recipe comes from my grandma and is a fan-favorite. It's my go-to comfort food, and this is also true for much of my family and even a few friends that have tried it over the years. I admit I'm a little biased, and maybe this is just nostalgia, but this is hands down my favorite mac and cheese recipe and that's saying a LOT!
This is definitely not your typical mac and cheese recipe. First off, it contains a pretty large amount of tomatoes. And the secret is adding sugar to balance out the acidity of the tomatoes. I actually cut down the sugar a little bit from what my grandma uses! But what you end up getting is a surprisingly sweet but amazingly addictive and well balanced dish.
