 My son likes it too, and he's not a huge fan of tomatoes.  I only ever make it when fish is for dinner.

 My husband's family is in commercial fishing and we eat fish a lot.  He grew up with the tradition of having cooked macaroni with a can of diced tomatoes stirred into it, and sprinkled with parmesan cheese.  It's actually really good.

My dh loves tomatoes and macaroni too. The kids seems to like it too. I'm not a fan but I'm not a big fan of tomatoes .

 homefries or rice and coleslaw with oil & vinegar dressing, or a veggie like broccoli with lemon would be good.

Asparagus and couscous are staple fish sides in our house. Or any green veggie really, steamed green beans or broccoli also make their way onto our plates with fish. Just try to keep from all one color- fish is white, don't do coliflour and mashed potatos. Colorful plates just look more yummy!

You could do a baked potato, with some herbs and spices.

You could do plain rice with veggies. Or rice, veggies, and sauce with it.


Or ummm... roasted veggies, and roasted potatoes. 

Or roasted veggies with baked french fries. < adds no oil and if you leave them in just long enough they still get crispy on the outside. I never deep fry french fries any more.
