Baked to golden perfection and oozing with cheese, this is comfort food at its finest. The ricotta makes this version extra creamy.


1 lb. elbow macaroni
2 lb. ricotta cheese
4 cups grated sharp cheddar, divided
3⁄4 cup grated Parmesan
2 whole eggs and 1 egg yolk
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. freshly ground pepper


1. Cook macaroni in boiling, salted water; drain.

2. In bowl, combine ricotta, 2 cups cheddar, and Parmesan; stir in macaroni and let cool. Mix in eggs and yolk; season with salt and pepper.

3. Spoon into individual baking dishes. Sprinkle with remaining cheddar. Bake at 325°F for 20-30 min., or
until lightly brown on top.
