JULY 7TH – MACARONI, STRAWBERRY SUNDAES, CHOCOLATE and ICE CREAM CONES

Fresh Tomato Mac N’ Cheese Pizza Pie

2 large fresh tomatoes

6 Tbsp. ketchup, divided

3 large eggs, lightly beaten

1 ½ c. elbow macaroni (uncooked)

1 hot dog, cut up, thinly sliced (about ¼ cup)

12 slices (8 oz.) American processed cheese, divided

Preheat oven to 350°. Use tomatoes held at room temperature until fully ripe. Core & cut tomatoes into ¼” thick slices; set aside. Cook macaroni in unsalted water according to package directions (makes about 5 cups); drain well. Lightly spray a 12” pizza pan with nonstick spray. In large bowl, combine macaroni with 4 Tbsp. ketchup, eggs & 8 slices of cheese torn into small pieces. Spoon macaroni mixture onto prepared pizza pan, pressing down lightly to even out. Around outside edge, arrange overlapping tomato slices; brush remaining 2 tbsp. ketchup over tomatoes. Cut 4 remaining cheese slices diagonally in halves; place partially over tomatoes. Arrange hot dog slices in center. Bake until mixture is hot, about 20 minutes.
