That was my grandmother's (on my father's side) speciality. But made from small curved macaroni. She made it actually for any "nice" dinner, and sillisalaatti (well, rosolli, but sillsallad is what I call it, although it's without the silli ) where every item is separate next to each other in stipes (looked really nice... we just mix it all up). My mother used to make macaroni casserole too, but complained that she never got it as compact as my grandmother used to make it, so it was eventually left out from our Christmas table.Hank W. wrote:Were we the only family that had a 'plain' macaroni casserole?
