Mom's Macaroni Supreme

"The most popular recipe in my mom's arsenal! Unfortunately so many people have requested the recipe in the past 40+ years that she can no longer claim it as her own! This makes a great side dish and is often seen at every family gathering and church pot-luck that we attend. My brother & I always liked ours a little soupy so when I make it for us I add a little extra milk to the top so that it stays loose. Truly Yummy!"

Ready In:




  • Cook pasta according to package directions however cook until al-dente- or approximately 2 minutes less that it says to cook. Drain noodles. Do not rinse.
  • Take a 9x13" pan and butter well. Sprinkle parmesean cheese on bottom of pan and set pan aside.
  • Heat half and half, milk, butter and salt together over medium heat until hot. DO NOT BOIL. ( A non-stick pot is great so that the milk won't stick and burn on the bottom.) Take out 1 cup of the milk / butter mixture and set aside.

I come from a large Greek family and I learned how to cook at a very young age. I was always inspired watching my dad work his magic with garlic, lemon and olive oil and sitting at my papou's (grandpa) feet watching him make amazing soups. Today I take all those memories and recreate the dishes I grew up eating. It's funny that when you are a child you don't want to eat the dinner that mom and dad made and only want chicken nuggets- but once you are an adult you yearn for all those foods that you were gently force fed! I still try to get it just right and I think my dad would be proud with the legacy he left me!
