Ingredients

  • 1 box (1-pound) Elbow Macaroni
  • butter for greasing
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 cups crumbled feta cheese
  • 5 eggs
  • 3 cups milk
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian Seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika

For the Topping (Optional)

  • 2 cups panko crumbs or plain breadcrumbs
  • freshly grated parmesan cheese, for topping
  • freshly chopped parsley, for garnish

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 400˚F.

  • In the meantime, generously butter a 13-by-9-inch baking dish.
  • Pour cooked macaroni into baking dish and toss with 1 tablespoon butter.
  • Mix in crumbled feta cheese.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, chili powder, and paprika.
