What size can of tomato juice??? And is it uncooked mac?

I make quite a few dishes using un-cooked macaroni, and I would say that this looks like it would be too dry without cooking noodles first! My rule of thumb is "twice" the amount of liquid, when using non-cooked pasta!! doesn't say how many servings.....going to try it this weekend for a birthday gathering!! Gonna make a LOT!!

It might be easier on a new cook if you said to precook the macaroni. The way it reads you just pour it in the pan from the box.

@gramoliver: Thanks for the suggestion! We do post serving amounts on recipes whenever possible. However, many of our recipes are user submitted and do not include serving information. We apologize for any inconvenience. -- Editor of FaveHealthyRecipes

you really need to post how many servings. Sometimes when it does say the amount of servings it does not tell you the quantity. So you have to measure the whole recipe to see.
