    EveryoneLovesaSpringer's Note:

    A Greek baked macaroni dish that will surely please anyone! This recipe came from a friend's mother (yes - she is Greek!). According to her, any grated cheese will do. I have made this with cheddar, with mozzarella, and with a mixture of parmesan and romano. It is delicious whatever you use!
