How to Make 5-CHEESE BAKED MACARONI Italian Style

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.

    Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Drop the Ziti into the boiling water and cook for 2 minutes less than the package directions request. Drain and set aside.
    Meanwhile melt the Butter in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Once melted, add the
    Onions, Garlic and Sage. Season with Salt and Pepper and sauté until vegetables are translucent (about 5 minutes). Add the Flour, stir to combine, and cook for 2 minutes. Add the Wine and Stock and bring to a simmer. Add the Freshly Grated Nutmeg. Cook for 5 minutes to thicken the sauce and cook off the alcohol.
  2. Turn the heat to low and add in all the Cheeses, except the Mozzarella. Stir vigorously to combine until a smooth mixture forms. Remove from heat. Add the reserved Ziti, Butternut Squash, Coarse Black Pepper and Salt to taste. Sprinkle the top with Shredded Mozzarella.
    Place in the oven and broil for 2-3 minutes.
