"Pasta with melted cheese is the one thing I could eat over and over again." -Yotam Ottolenghi
You make lasagna using uncooked noodles and baking them with the sauce in the oven, so why not do it with macaroni? Add all the ingredients in the pan, bake, and boom: rich, creamy, cheesy pasta.
The garlic, rich tomato paste, and rosemary come together really well. You could create fantastic variations on this with different flavors. Try sun dried tomato paste or dried oregano, or add some smoked paprika or maybe some red pepper flakes for some spice.
