Macaroni au Gratin / Haitian Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Haitian Macaroni au Gratin is not your standard mac-n-cheese. This full-flavor recipe includes seasonings like Worcester sauce, white pepper, and mustard which can be adjusted to suit your own taste… and three different types of cheese!


  • 8 oz penne pasta
  • 15 oz ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 1 1/2 tsp white pepper
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 chicken bouillon cube, crushed
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 6 oz mozzarella cheese
  • 3 oz parmesan cheese
  • 3 oz cheddar cheese
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Boil pasta in 4 cups salted water until just soft enough to press.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the egg. Add all of the ingredients except for the Parmesan cheese and stir well.
  4. Drain pasta and add to the bowl. Mix very well to evenly coat the pasta.
  5. Pour everything into a large casserole dish and sprinkle the top with Parmesan cheese. Bake for 20-30 minutes, until bubbling and light brown.
  6. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes. Serve.
