DIRECTIONS

  • Saute onion and beef together in a skillet. Drain excess fat after the beef is browned.
  • Add the tomato sauce, salt, pepper, oregano, allspice and cinnamon into the meat and onions. Set aside to cool.
  • Beat together one egg and milk, and stir into the uncooked macaroni, along with 1/4 cup of the Parmesan cheese.
  • Place the macaroni mix into a greased 5 qt slow cooker.
  • Whisk one egg into the tomato-meat sauce. Pour it over the macaroni in the slow cooker.
  • Combine the two remaining eggs, flour and half and half in a bowl and whisk together well, Add the remaining 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese and whisk again.
  • Gently pour the half-and-half mixture over the tomato sauce layer, trying not to disturb it if possible. Sprinkle with nutmeg.
  • Cover and cook on Low for 4 to 5 hours, until macaroni is soft and sauce is bubbling around the edges. (Not sure how to check the macaroni when it's the bottom, but that's what she wrote!).
