RECIPE WEDNESDAY: Macaroni Recipe from the past..Let it be rather overdone?

This is an old macaroni recipe from a cookbook that sounded interesting…


Break in very short lengths small macaroni (vermicelli, spaghetti, tagliarini). Let it be rather overdone; dress it with butter and grated cheese, then work into it one or two eggs, according to quantity, Butter and bread crumb a plain mold, and when the macaroni is nearly cold fill the mold with it, pressing it well down and leaving a hollow in the centre, into which place a well-flavored mince of meat, poultry or game; then fill up the mold with more macaroni, pressed well down. Bake in a moderately heated oven, turn out and serve.
