READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by ciggy99

If you want something different, and love pasta, you'll like this. I can't take credit for this, it was made up by my Mom one day when she wanted something different to eat. She was an an amazing cook. I had her make it many more times. Thank goodness I had her teach me this one, many other's I wish I'd paid better attention to.

Made as given, though I seasoned it with lemon pepper instead of the usual S&P! Easy to make & a great new way for me to serve up macaroni! Definitely a recipe worth keeping around! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's round of Pick A Chef]
