"This magical macaroni dish will make a disappearing act on the dinner table. I've not only served it up as a main dish during the week, but I've served it as a side dish on the Thanksgiving table. It's got ham and cheese, but I think the secret ingredients are the half-and-half and eggs. Don't forget to cook the noodles with the chicken bouillon cubes for a really flavorful noodle. Enjoy!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

In reviewing the ingredients, there's nothing in the recipe to make it "Italian", so I'm kinda scratching my head as to why it was added as part of the description.
Made the recipe as written and baked up fine. I was a bit concerned with the finished texture of the Mac/Cheese, it wasn't creamy cheese, but more of a firm flan/custard like sauce after baking. There's not much "cheese" IN the recipe so much as its a topping. My husband enjoyed it and 1 of 2 boys did as well. I just couldn't get around the texture and lack of cheese in the sauce and lack of seasoning. I included Italian seasoning into this recipe, so at least I'd be able to say its Italian Mac & Cheese.
Made it by the recipe with no changes except I used 16 oz of macaroni to stretch my budget. Came out good. A little on the plain side. Like Maria above I don't understand the "italian" part of the recipe title. But this made a easy mac and cheese for a side dish. Next time I might put in some Gouda or Munster too.
