This is a wonderful Pot Luck dish that both kids and adults will truly love! The tomatoe soup "marinara" is simply delicious and very different from a traditional Italian pasta and sauce dish. Use the reccommended amount of celery too, it makes a wonderful difference!

This recipe feeds a good size crowd, so you might want to cut it in half if you are serving fewer people. You will easily fill to the brim a 13 x 9 casserole dish.

Be sure to cover the casserole with aluminun foil during the baking period leaving a few opened edges so the macatoni doesn't "steam" and become too "mushy".
