Comment from Kate
I have only ever eaten Mexican food once before and one thing I noticed was that cheese is definitely a main ingredient in their dishes.
When I first saw your recipe I was thinking what makes this Mexican, surely it should be spicy yet you have not added any spices in your recipe. Then I saw the cheese and realized that’s the Mexican part.
It does sounds like a very quick and easy recipe and I do like the idea of mixing cheese, pasta and tomatoes. I would have to use an alternative to the beef as I am a vegetarian but that’s Ok I’m sure it will still taste great to me.
This would be a great recipe for barbecues and salad or as a smaller portion with half a jacket potato.
I have never been a great fan of macaroni cheese, I found it a little bland and sickly. but with the addition of the tomatoes and beef I think will make this a much nicer meal.
Kids should like this too as they do tend to like macaroni cheese and this pepped up version will make it even more popular I think.
This recipe reminds me a little of another recipe sent in called spaghetti pie. the different being that I think this would probably be best served always hot while the other one could be served cold as I think it would solidify into more of a solid pie piece. Both are ideas I will try in the future.
