      The ingredient amounts of this recipe must be wrong. Using a 1/2 lb. of macaroni yielded enough to barely cover the bottom of my casserole dish, no way near enough for three layers. I ened up using only half of the milk/egg mixture, and yet once baked there was still an incredible amount of liquid left in the dish, with gobs of butter floating on top. The concept is good, using the kephalotiri cheese yielded a mild but good taste, if you could get past all the liquid. Sorry, but two stars is all I can give for this, and that for the taste and the basic idea.
