  • 1lb Cavatappi or Cellentani (spiral macaroni)
  • 1lb shredded mild cheddar
  • 1lb shredded Colby jack
  • 8oz shredded triple cheddar
  • 8oz sharp cheddar cheese
  • 4c gal whole milk (approximately)
  • 4 large eggs
  • garlic powder
  • salt
  • pepper


-Preheat oven to 375°
-Bring water to a boil in a large stockpot.
- Add salt and olive oil to the water. It gives flavor to the noodles and also keeps them from sticking.
-Boil noodles until “al dente” or cooked but still firm.
-Drain noodles and pour into a half size foil pan. Mix in mild cheddar, Colby jack, and triple cheddar. Add eggs, milk, and seasonings (to taste).
-Sprinkle sharp cheddar on top of the mixture.
-Bake for approximately 1 hour or until the milk has been absorbed and cheese has fully melted.
-if the top of your Mac browns before the inside is done, use a “foil tent” (loosely placed aluminum foil covering) to prevent the top from burning while the rest continues to cook.
