This isn't your same old mac and cheese. Topped with tomatoes, we give this traditional favorite a tempting new taste. You're going to love it.

2 cups elbow macaroni
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
2 cups American cheese, shredded
2 cups milk
1 large tomato, sliced

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cook macaroni and drain. Melt butter in pan. Remove from heat and stir in salt, pepper and flour until smooth, making a light roux. Gradually stir in milk. Return to heat and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and stir in 1 1/2 cups cheese. Add macaroni. Pour into 1 1/2 quart casserole. Arrange tomato slices on top, and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until hot and bubbly.
