Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling stir in the macaroni and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through but is still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
Pour the macaroni into a saucepan and place over medium heat; stir in the butter, bacon grease, tomato sauce, tomatoes with juice and sugar; season with salt and pepper. Stir while cooking until butter and bacon grease has melted and incorporated completely, 5 to 10 minutes; remove from heat, cover and allow to sit about 20 minutes before serving.
