Baked Macaroni x 3

x 3? Yes. Three kinds of pasta and three kinds of cheese. The pasta was pre-cooked in the freezer. I had Ravioli, Ditalini, and Ziti. I had boiled too much pasta more than once and decided to freeze it instead of having too many carbs for lunch. Wise decision. This was the easiest Baked Macaroni I have ever made. The pasta was thawed and layered in the baking dish with American, Cheddar and Parmesan Cheese. Actually, it would have been a Four Cheese Baked Macaroni because the Ravioli was filled with Ricotta. However many kinds of cheese there were we both agreed it was delicious.

Here is the base recipe for my Mom's Baked Macaroni. You can take this recipe and add whatever you like, cheese, pasta, even vegetables... hmmm vegetables...

Mom's Baked Macaroni -
Grease Pyrex glass loaf dish.
Cook 1/2 box of pasta elbows.
In the baking dish put a layer of cooked pasta. Top with some American Cheese and then add more pasta. Continue layering until you end with a pasta layer. You should have 3 layers of pasta. Beat 2 eggs and pour over the pasta. Fill the baking dish with milk. Fill until the milk almost reaches the top of the dish. Sprinkle the top with breadcrumbs, parsley and Parmesan cheese. Bake for 45 to 60 minutes at 350 degrees. Cover the top with foil if it starts to burn.
