Kaese Makkaroni Rezept (Recipe)


"Cheese Macaroni"  I guess you could say it's a German version of Mac and Cheese - After tasting it for the first time in May I knew it would be something I had to cook in the future. Last month, I finally decided it was time to try it out.  
I went to buy all the necessary ingredients, but the store I go to didn't have Ricotta cheese, I substituted it for  Sahnequark, and extra cheese. I got it from a German cookbook but the english version is at the end of this post.
