"I have not made this recipe but I have made a similar one. The macaroni soaks up the liquid while sitting overnight and bakes up just fine. "

"I was wondering the same thing about the macaroni. Has anyone made this recipe with the macaroni uncooked?"

"Since it is being stored in The refrigerator overnight, it wouldn't need to be cooked (you can do the same trick with lasagne)."
