Italian Style Macaroni and Cheese( Family Favorite) (Pictures included)

A great Easter Tradition for those who choose to eat a meatless meal.

One of the favorite Family Recipes!

Easy dish to prepare and as a suggestion you may also make this dish in a 9x13 size pan.  Let it set for a few minutes and cut in squares in bite size pieces.  Enjoy!


On Friday's during the Lenten Season we ate meatless meals growing up and still do.  This dish was and still is a family favorite.  My mom shared with me her secret (lots of Italian Cheese for flavor).  Do not skimp!!!  Happy Cooking!

My grandmother used to make this and my mom made it as well so I'm following tradition.  Enjoy! I adjusted the recipe slightly since now noodles are 12 oz. instead of a pound pkg..

3 eggs beaten
1 cup milk
1  1/2 cups grated Italian Cheese(Pecorino Romano(Mom and Grandma used 1 cup but I  find that adding about 1 1/2 cups of cheese is a little tastier)
1 pkg(12 oz) Fine Egg Noodles
Cook egg noodles according to package directions with a slight amount of salt.  Rinse thoroughly.

Mix together eggs, milk and cheese.  Add to noodles....Grease a square 8x8 pan or 13x9 in. with butter(I used  a 9 inch pie plate) I thought it added a nice touch for serving!  Place all noodle mix in pan/dish.
 Top with some more grated cheese and pepper.  Dab a little butter on top..

Bake 350 degrees for about 30 minutes..LAST FEW MINUTES TURN BROILER ON AND SLIGHTLY BROWN TOP. Cool slightly and cut in squares or pie slices.  Serve with a salad

From my kitchen to yours,
