Cook macaroni. Drain.
Fry bacon, drain, and chop. Save drippings.
Put a little of the bacon dripping in the pan you cooked the macaroni in and saute the onion and celery. Mix sauteed onions and celery with macaroni – add ALL the bacon drippings and stir in tomatoes and chopped bacon.
Put all the mixture in a casserole 9 x 12 pan, slice cheese into chunks to cover the top. Bake at 325 for 30- 40 minutes until melted. Do not let burn.
Notes from Carol: ‘Wa-la, fat city – men love it, and always splurge on good bacon’.
