  • 1 ½ tbsp salt
  • 230gr Stefano macaroni
  • ½ cup grated Gruyère cheese
  • ½ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 ½ cup grated cheddar
  • 2 cups heavy cream 35%
  • 1/3 cup breadcrumbs
  • Salt to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350F (or 180C).
  2. In a medium saucepan, bring 2 liters of salted water to a boil. Add macaroni and cook until barely al dente, about 2 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, stir the grated cheeses together. Set aside.
  4. Drain the macaroni and set aside.
  5. In a large frying pan, heat the cream with a pinch of salt. Once cream starts to simmer, add the pasta. Stir for about 2 minutes.
  6. Add about 1/3 of the cheese mix to the macaroni. Stir to combine.
  7. Turn off the heat and add another 1/3 of the cheese mixture to the macaroni. Combine well.
  8. Mix the breadcrumbs with the remaining cheese mixture.
  9. Transfer macaroni mixture to an oven-safe baking dish (about 6-8 inches).
  10. Top the pasta with the cheese and breadcrumb mixture in an even layer. Do not stir.
  11. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes or until topping is golden brown.
