1 pound macaroni -- cooked and drained
8 tablespoons butter or margarine -- melted
3 large eggs -- lightly beaten
1/2 cup grated cheese
1 1/2 cups feta cheese -- cubed
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon white pepper
1 teaspoon nutmeg -- grated
12 sheets commercial filo cut to fit pan -- covered to avoid drying

Preparation / Directions:

In a large bowl, combine the macaroni, one-third of the melted butter, the eggs, grated cheese, and feta. Season with salt, white pepper, and nutmeg and mix with a wooden spoon. In a buttered 9 x 12 x 3-inch baking pan, spread the macaroni-cheese mixture over the filo and cover with the 6 remaining sheets of filo, brushing butter between each and on the surface. Using the tip of a sharp knife, score the top 3 to 4 sheets to indicate 12 servings. Bake in a moderate oven (350F) for 30 minutes, or until the surface is crisp. Remove to a rack for 10 minutes, then cut and serve on a warm platter. Source: The Food of Greece - by Vilma Liacouras Chantiles ISBN:0-517-27888-X
