Macaroni Hot Dish

Do you remember the hotdish you grew up on?  The tomato, hamburger, spiral macaroni topped with your favorite cheese.  Well my daughters had a taste for it lately.  They made it and said it just wasn't the same as they remember.  Anyway, I made it for Dennis and myself last night. I think it turned out just fine and really yummy. If any of you wonder what macaroni is, well it is what we call pasta.  Years ago the term was macaroni.  Hot Dish was also known to all of us who brought to our church pot luck dinners. Those were amazing days of fabulous food.  Good Luck!

Macaroni Hot Dish

1/2 pound pasta of your choice (Cooked)
