  • 2 1/2 cups macaroni or penne
  • 4 cups milk
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese
  • ground pepper black or white
  • a pinch of nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • a pinch of paprika
  1. Boil macaroni noodles for about 15 minutes in milk with a pinch of salt. Be careful since the milk could boil over.
  2. When macaroni are done, and they absorb most of the milk, add butter, parmesan cheese, pepper and nutmeg to the pot. Stir until butter and cheese melt.
  3. Transfer to a buttered baking dish (volume 4 cups or 1 liter). Combine bread crumbs with paprika and sprinkle over macaroni. Bake Civil War Macaroni and Cheese in 350 F (175C) oven for about 20 minutes or until breadcrumbs become lightly brown.
