  • 10 oz macaroni or any curly short pasta
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 2 oz Gruyere grated
  • 1/2 lb salmon cut into ½” cubes
  • 2 tsp freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C.
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook the macaroni pasta until it’s al dente. Immediately take off the water and reserve.
  • In a large sized bowl whip the egg until there are no strings of white or yolk left. Add the heavy cream, milk, 2 oz Parmesan, Gruyere, black pepper, salmon and 1 teaspoon of salt. Mix until combined. Add the pasta and incorporate everything together.
