Baked Macaroni

My family's heritage dish :-) influenced by Dutch colonization.
We call it as
Macaroni Schotel.
Here i am sharing the recipe, maybe it looks so complicated but in fact it is so easy to make.
Just give it a try and you will be so proud of yourself :)

  • 400grams uncooked elbow macaroni
  • 250-300cc fresh milk
  • 3tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 250 grams ground beef/chicken/lamb* (i am using ground beef as the original recipe)
  • Salt, pepper*
  • shallot, garlic*, diced
  • 6 eggs
  • Tomato paste (if u wanna the color is so red then you can put this more)
  • Grated Cheddar Cheese
  • some shallots, diced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Cooking oil for sauteing
  • some melted or grated cheddar cheese for finishing**
  • some scrambled-eggs for finishing**
How To Make:

  1. Prepare the elbow macaroni according to instructions in the package and intentionally cut the cooking time so that the macaroni is not well done (the macaroni will be fully cooked once baked) then drain and set aside.
  2. *Heat the cooking pot and put-in the oil. When the cooking oil is hot enough, add the shallots, and garlic until smell good then out in the ground beef, some salts and peppers to taste and cook for 5 minutes or until the color turns medium brown. Turn off the heat and put aside.
  3. In the saucepan, heat the cooking oil then place the shallot, onion until smell good. Add the flour stir constantly, slowly whisk in the milk and continue to whisk until the sauce thickens.
  4. Put in the number 2/ the cooked-meat and the cooked-macaroni then eggs one in a time, grated cheddar cheese, tomato paste. Mix them well, add salt and pepper to taste. Turn off the heat.
  5. **Pour into baking dish and spread some melted cheese/ grated cheddar-cheese and scrambled-eggs on the top, then bake to 180C preheated-oven until golden brown/ for about 25-30 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and allow to cool down a bit.
