Cheesy Tomato Mac



Good morning all, we woke up to a rainy Tuesday and so I thought maybe you all would enjoy this comforting dish.  This cheesy tomato mac really doesn't pack a lot of fat or calories its just downright good.  This hits all the notes that comfort food does but it is just missing the guilt.  We all have been there trying to be healthy, working out and drinking water but there are those days when the potato chip bag from your pantry is screaming at you to "come hither."  If your food doesn't talk to you like that well..... good for you, however there are some of us that are not that lucky.  At any rate let's get on with the recipe before I completely embarrass myself shall we?

Ingredients:

1/2 cup of any pasta you like I chose Rotini Prmavera (multicolored spirals) 
2 triangles of laughing cow spreadable cheese in white cheddar
1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil
1 large tomato diced
salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

Cook the pasta according to directions just add some salt to your water before it boils, it will give your pasta a little extra flavor.  Next drain your pasta do not rinse it put it back on the stove and on low heat melt in the cheese and add the diced tomato.  Mix until combined and the cheese is melted.  Drizzle the extra virgin olive oil over the top and add salt and pepper to taste.  Its that easy and quick guys, you can adjust this recipe to feed more people if you like.  1/2 cup of pasta will feed 2 people easy with some for left overs.  You can add more spices if you like, I left them out because my kids like less spice and I made this for them.  Add a garden salad and your in business for a comforting and healthy meal the mishmawsh way.  
Live, laugh and love all!
