5-ingredient baked fusilli and cheese with ham

Based on 76 ratings

"Nudel-Schinken-Gratin is a prepared product that’s super popular in Germany. This take makes it from scratch, and does a pretty good job of hitting all the necessary flavor notes. It’s basically a variation of macaroni and cheese, so all mac and cheese lovers should be able to get behind it. If you don’t want to dirty up a casserole dish, add all the cheese to the pot at once and serve straight from the pot."
