This thread is for easy make food recipes from other countries. Mine are from Finland. I am waiting here also recipes from Palestine.
Finnish Macaroni Bake
This is traditional Finnish home food. Kids love this with ketchup.
500 ml macaroni, dried
500 g ground meat
1 onion, chopped
400 ml milk
Preheat the oven to 200°C.
Fry onion and ground beef until onion is soft and the beef is brown.
Boil the macaroni al dente (it will still cook in the oven).
Mix the pasta, beef and onion, season with salt and pepper and put in a shallow oven dish.
Mix the milk and eggs together, pour on the pasta mixture. It should just cover everything.
Bake in the oven for about an hour.
200 gr cookie crumbs or dry cake crumbs
1 dl light juice (apple)
2 dl strawberry, raspberry or apple jam
2 dl whipped cream
1 tsp sugar
Whip the cream together with the sugar until light. Moisten the cookie or cake crumbs with juice.
Place the ingredients in layers (crumbs, jam and whipped cream) into dessert dishes or a bowl. Cover the dessert dishes or bowl with plastic wrap and place into the fridge for preferably 2 – 3 hours before serving.
Serve the Finnish Trifle cold. The Finnish name ”Pappilan hatavara”, means ”The hasty dessert of the Vicarage”; A dessert which was served to "unexpected visitors".

5. Serve hot topped with a bit of jam. If you top it all off with whipped cream, your "poor knights" become "rich knights".
Cook the vegetables in their skin well beforehand until just tender. Peel the vegetables and onion, and cut them into small, equal-sized cubes. Mix them together and season with a little salt and white pepper.
Whip the cream lightly, season with sugar and vinegar and add a few drops of beetroot liquid for colour. Serve the dressing separately. Garnish the salad with hard-boiled eggs, the yolks and whites chopped separately and laid in stripes on the top.
