Macaroni and Tomatoes

Each family has their own comfort food. This is definately mine. As a kid, when mom was out for the evening and dad was cooking, this was a staple in the Dunnagan household. It’s super simple, super cheap, and super good. Toss a bag of macaroni in the pot. After draining and rinsing the mac add 1-2 cans of diced tomatoes. Done.

As I have gotten older and developed a taste for spicy things I've added 2 cans of rotel instead of tomatoes. I also add some cracked pepper and top it off with some shredded cheese. If you are a milk drinker like dad and myself, pour yourself a tall glass of goodness and take a seat.

1 bag of mac- $1.15ish
2 cans of tomatoes- $2.50ish.
Who can beat a meal to feed 2-4 under 4 dollars?
