I would rename this dish “Italian Mac and Cheese”. The use of Italian seasoning and Parmesan cheese creates a very unique flavor. I did not use canned tomatoes because I had some grape and plum tomatoes I wanted to use up. I diced them up, put them in the colander and drained the hot macaroni with them. Otherwise, the recipe was followed. It’s a nice variation from traditional man and cheese, if you want something different.
