One of my husband's favourite comfort foods — and one shared by many others — is a big helping of macaroni and cheese. In his case, he remembers the Kraft Deluxe Macaroni & Cheese that his father baked with a can of crushed tomatoes. Of course, now that he's eating out of my kitchen he gets my own brand of comfort food, meaning fresh quality ingredients assembled by hand and with a little spicy touch of my own tossed in. I'm happy to say that a big helping of warm and creamy homemade jalapeño and tomato mac'n'cheese did just the comfort trick for him while giving him a taste of something new at the same time. After all, moving forward is important even when we want to indulge our nostalgic feelings.
This is my submission to Presto Pasta Nights, a very popular weekly event started by Ruth of Once Upon a Cook, and hosted this week by Pictures of all my princesses. I am running on about two hours of sleep in the last 48 hours and sick besides, but I wanted to share this recipe because it is so good and easy to prepare.
