Grandma's Baked Macaroni

Morcash Sweat


Started out as my father's - mother's recipe, then became the family favorite when my mom's - mother made it for our family gatherings. It is tradition to have at all our family gatherings. Each family member who has made it, often tries to improve it. But it's easily made and always brings us memories of grandma and grandmother.
