  1. Partially cook the macaroni in salted water and drain well.
  2. Put in a baking dish and pour half of the butter over the macaroni.
  3. Beat the egg whites and mix in the macaroni. Keep the yolks.They will be used to make the bechamel sauce.
  4. Sprinkle with half of the cheese.
  5. With the remaining butter brown the minced meat and the onion. Add the strained tomatoes or the tomato paste, salt, pepper and simmer until liquid is absorbed. Remove from the heat and add the remaining grated cheese. Stir all well.
  6. Prepare the béchamel sauce. Butter a baking dish. Lay half of the macaroni in the pan. Spread evenly with the meat mixture. Lay the rest of the macaroni on top.
  7. Pour the bechamel sauce over them and sprinkle with grated cheese and some melted butter.
  8. Bake in a moderate oven (200 C) until bechamel gets brown (40 – 45 minutes).


  • 500 gr thick macaroni
  • 1 kg minced meat
  • 3 eggs
  • 180 gr grated kefalo or Parmesan cheese
  • 100 gr oil
  • 1 medium sized onion
  • 500 gr ripe tomatoes
  • 1 portion béchamel sauce
  • salt
  • pepper


  1. Recipe too vague. Neither butter nor egg(s) listed in list of ingredients. Also bechemel sauce recipe should be included.

  2. I think they should make the instructions way more clear and specific. I mean, how long am I supposed to bake it? This is so frustrating. It sounds alright though. Sounds like it will taste good if I do it right! And this is coming from someone who just turned 14 on the 19th of November.

  3. lets be fair its not rocket science just use common sence.
