I would like a recipe using macaroni that is baked in the oven not precooked in a pot of water

An Idea For You

I don't have an exact recipe, but consider this:

If lasagna can be baked without cooking the pasta first, so can mac'n'cheese.

The idea with lasagna is that the pasta cooks from the juices of the sauce and ricotta cheese.

SO do the same for mac'n'cheese with extra milk & butter or add cottage cheese. It doesn't have to be swimming in juices, just try 25% more (if you use 1 cup milk normally, then use 1-1/4 cup with dry macaroni).

Give it a try! (Just don't announce that it is on the menu beforehand.) :)

another suggestion.

every non boil lasagna recipe i have seen sits overnight. maybe you could do all those suggestions the night before baking?

Mac and Cheese

This recipe might be worthwhile. I don't think it has to sit overnight
