Baked Macaroni with Cheese

Baked Macaroni is one of my favourite pasta dishes; I just love munching on it. It traditionally uses elbow macaroni topped with chewy cheese. It has ground beef/pork (giniling) and ham with tomato sauce and tomato paste. Some people add bell peppers but most kids remove the bell peppers so I prefer not to add any.

Let’s start cooking!
