Stop what you are doing and make this Macaroni Pie ASAP. This is hands-down THE BEST mac & cheese EVER. It is made with thin spaghetti instead of elbow macaroni and has tons and tons of ooey, gooey cheese. Chicken Legs could not stop raving about this dish! He has requested that we only serve this mac & cheese from now on. We served this as a side dish, but you could add some ham or chicken to the pasta and make this a main dish.

This is super easy to make. Start with boiling the spaghetti. Next, whisk together eggs, milk, dry mustard, and cayenne pepper. Add cooked pasta and cheese. Toss everything together, transfer to a cooking pan or skillet and bake. I baked this in a 12-inch cast iron skillet. If you don’t have a large cast iron skillet, you could use a 9×13-inch pan.

This makes a TON of cheesy pasta. You could easily half the recipe if you don’t need to feed a crowd. You could even split the mac & cheese between two pans. Bake one now and freeze one for later. This pasta goes with just about everything. Here are a few of our favorite recipes from the blog that go great with this cheesy spaghetti:

  1. To cut down on the amount of cheese – do you think I could add a can of cheddar cheese soup and maybe 1/2 the cheese??

  2. This was a big hit with the mac & cheese fans at my house. I made 1/2 batch in a 9" skillet, using elbow macaroni (because I didn't want to listen to the 15 year old debate that it shouldn't be called macaroni pie if it had spaghetti). I baked it for 35 minutes – next time, I'll check it a few minutes earlier. There will definitely be a next time.

  3. Just a quick question…does it matter if the cheese is freshly shredded or store bought shredded? Sometimes the preshredded cheese makes mac & cheese clumpy.

    1. I used pre shredded cheese from Costco and it was fine. Fresh grated is always better, but I think the pre shredded should be fine.
