Awesome Italian Macaroni and Cheese

Rated as 2.67 out of 5 Stars

"This magical macaroni dish will make a disappearing act on the dinner table. I've not only served it up as a main dish during the week, but I've served it as a side dish on the Thanksgiving table. It's got ham and cheese, but I think the secret ingredients are the half-and-half and eggs. Don't forget to cook the noodles with the chicken bouillon cubes for a really flavorful noodle. Enjoy!"

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8-inch square baking dish.
  2. Dissolve chicken bouillon cubes in water in a large pot; bring to a boil. Cook macaroni in the boiling water until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 minutes; drain.
  3. Layer about half the macaroni in the bottom of the prepared baking dish; top with about half the diced smoked ham. Repeat layers.
  4. Whisk eggs, half-and-half, salt, and white pepper together in a bowl; pour over the noodle and ham layers. Top everything with Cheddar cheese.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until the cheese is melted and browning around the edges, about 35 minutes.

Made it by the recipe with no changes except I used 16 oz of macaroni to stretch my budget. Came out good. A little on the plain side. Like Maria above I don't understand the "italian" part of t...

I didn't add salt. The boullion and ham lends enough.

Yeah, there's nothing Italian about this and the texture isn't great. The flavor's okay, it's just the texture I didn't care for.
