This is very similar to the recipe I use (which came off of a box of elbow macaroni). I also add a little bit of minced onion to the sauce. When I made it the other day, I used medium shells instead of elbows and threw in some grated Parmesan for the first time ever. Delish! (Nuked leftovers were perfectly acceptable too, for a quick lunch or a side dish!)


Yum! I make something similar but I also include sauteed onions and cauliflower (my kids love cauliflower but not everyone does).


If you add one teaspoon of dry mustard and 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper to the sauce and another cup of extra sharp cheddar it's a lot yummier. (That's via Cook's Illustrated, which I think does a better job on the classics than Bittman, although he does a much better job on original recipes.)
