I put a new twist to this old fashioned macaroni & cheese by topping it with fresh Tomato slices and adding Italian seasoning and parmesan cheese to kick the flavors up a knotch. It was really good, it was during a time that we had lots of fresh tomatoes in our garden and I was trying to find a new use for the tomatoes, and it worked out great the seasoning and melted cheese with the mac & cheese really did make a difference in the flavors. We all loved it.
