My mother was a country cook and knew how to make a dish that was cheap, easy and good. I grew up on this as a side dish. If you like tomatoes and pasta, you will love this. Just add fried cornbread and you got some good food.2 cups macaroni, uncooked 1 (14.5 ounce can) petite diced tomatoes 1 (14.5) ounce can) whole tomatoes in juice 1 tablespoon bacon grease (can add more) Salt to taste 1/2 teaspoon pepper Prepare macaroni in boiling, salted water according to package directions. Drain. Return pasta to cooking pot and add the diced tomatoes and whole tomatoes along with the juice. I just break up the whole tomatoes. Add bacon grease, salt and pepper and simmer for about 10 minutes. Enjoy! Note: I am sure there are a lot of different ways to prepare this dish. You could add other spices, chopped onions and green peppers, etc. but we like it just plain. I have made this using fresh tomatoes from the garden, too.
