DIRECTIONS

  • Bowl the water in a large pot. Add a splash of olive oil and salt to the water. Preheat oven to 375.
  • While waiting for water to boil, shred cheese and crush up crackers in separate bowls.
  • Once water is boiling, add pasta shells. Cook according to package (al dente).
  • Strain cooked pasta. Run cool water over cooked shells. Drizzle a little olive oil over cooked pasta.
  • Add cooked pasta to 13x9 baking dish.
  • Add 2-3 tbsp butter, stir around to coat all shells.
  • Add crushed cheese crackers, mix.
  • Add 1 cup milk, mix.
  • Add most--not all of each type of cheese, mix.
  • Add 4 eggs, mix.
  • Add garlic salt, season salt and pepper to taste, mix.
  • Add more milk as needed. You want it to be the consistency of a thick soup.
  • Cover with foil and bake in the oven on 375 for 30 minutes.
  • After 30 minutes, check to see that the cheese is melting nicely. Bake 15 min longer if necessary.
  • Remove foil, coat mixture with remaining cheese--try to cover all exposed pasta--and bake uncovered for another 15 min or until the cheese on top is golden.
  • Let cool a little before eating.
