2 ounces Dreamfields™ elbows (1/2 cup dry)
1 cup of heavy cream
1 cup grated Gruyère cheese
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon cayenne
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Stir in macaroni and cook until just done, stirring once or twice. (Check for doneness two minutes before the time given in the directions on the pasta box. It should be slightly firm since it will be cooked again.) Drain immediately and rinse with cold water. Place on paper toweling to cool.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Butter 4 (eight-ounce capacity) ramekins. Stir together the cheese and place ¼ of the cheese and ¼ of the pasta in each buttered baking cup.
Heat the cream until just warm. Whisk together cream, eggs, salt, and pepper until smooth. Pour the custard mixture over cheese and pasta, filling the cups almost to the top.
Put ramekins on a baking sheet and place on middle rack in preheated oven. Bake for 30 minutes or until puffed and well browned. (Check progress by looking through oven window; do not open oven door until custards are well risen.) Remove to a rack and let cool for about 5 minutes. Custards will sink a bit as they cool. Serve warm.
Makes 4 Servings.

- Use plenty of water. One pound of pasta requires at least 4 quarts of water.
- Bring water to a full, rolling boil. Add one tablespoon of salt per pound of pasta
- Add pasta to boiling water gradually.
- Stir pasta gently to keep pasta from clumping.
- Leave the pot uncovered and keep water at a constant boil. Stir occasionally.
- Test the pasta 2 minutes before end of cooking time to check tenderness.
