Hot Macaroni Mousse for Six
(From Better Meals in Wartime)
1 Cup uncooked elbow macaroni
1 ½ Cups scalded milk
1 Cup soft, white breadcrumbs
¼ Cup melted margarine (Remember, this was wartime!)
1 green pepper, minced
1 Tablespoon chopped parsley
2 Tablespoons chopped onions
1 Teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon paprika
½ Cup grated cheese
3 eggs, beaten
Boil the macaroni in salted, boiling water as directed on the package. Drain and place in a greased bread pan or oblong baking dish.
Sauce: Pour scalded milk over breadcrumbs. Add margarine, onions, parsley, seasonings, green pepper, and cheese. Stir in well-beaten eggs and pour the entire mixture over the macaroni.
Set the dish or plan in a pan of hot water-allowing the water to come halfway up the side of the dish and bake 40 minutes or more in a moderate oven (350 degrees). Test by inserting a knife to be sure it is firm. Turn out on a platter and decorate with watercress. This can be served as a main dish and meat substitute.
