Italian Macaroni and Cheese

“Another super-easy one that kids LOVE! They think it's cool to eat red and white mac and cheese. If you don't want to eat a raw egg simply add a little more milk.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 226.79 g pasta in a fun shape like medium pasta shell, spirals, wheels, etc. Something the cheese will cling to
  • 473.19 ml ricotta cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 59.14 ml milk
  • salt and pepper
  • 118.29 ml spaghetti sauce

Directions

  1. Cook pasta in salted water.
  2. In a bowl big enough to hold everything, mix cheese with egg, salt, pepper, and enough milk to make it gloppy. Add well-drained cooked pasta and mix gently with a lifting motion to avoid mushiness.
  3. Serve with sauce poured over and a sprinkling of freshly grated parmesan, asiago, or pecorino cheese if desired. It doesn't get much easier than this!
