Macaroni Pizza

Another recipe from a cookbook at my museum. This one was called Sharing Recipes, A Book of Favorite Recipes, put together by the Ladies Auxiliary of the WY VFW.

IMG_6578Like most combos of sauce, cheese, and pasta, it’s tasty, and maybe a bit fun because it’s different.

Ingredients:

  • 7 ounces elbow pasta
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • pinch black pepper
  • 8 ounces pasta sauce
  • 1 1/2 pounds Italian sausage, cooked (optional)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Grease a 9X9″ pan. (if you don’t have one, 7×11″ worked fine for me!)

Cook the pasta according to package instructions. Meanwhile, whisk together the eggs, milk, and pepper.

IMG_6567When the pasta is cooked, drain and stir into the egg mixture. Transfer to the prepared pan, and bake 10 minutes.

IMG_6569 IMG_6570Spread the pasta sauce over the pasta.

IMG_6572I was worried at this step that the pasta was still way too liquidy, and it was going to turn out gross, but never fear, it firms up! Spread the sausage over the pasta sauce, then top with cheese.

IMG_6573 IMG_6574Bake a further 10-15 minutes, until the cheese has lightly browned.

This is what you get trying to scoop it hot.

You can get nice edges with your refrigerated leftovers.
