I have a list of recipes that I am going to try. I write GG (Greg’s Gone) next to the recipes I want to try when husband is out of town. This was one of them. I just didn’t know if he would appreciate mac n’ cheese for dinner. I, however, thought it sounded great. I loved the addition of tomatoes to brighten it up and give it some fresh flavor. It smelled great and I devoured 2 bowls before my kids even made it to the table. I would give this recipe 4 stars, if you’re a mac n’ cheese type of person.
