Put the macaroni in boiling water, and boil it 20 minutes.
Then pour away the water, and stew it in the stock until tender.
Put a layer of macaroni in the bottom of a greased pie-dish.
Lay on it the meat, and cover it with another layer of macaroni, seasoning with pepper and salt.
Proceed in this way, until the dish is full (the top layer must be macaroni).
If tomatoes are used, slice them, and lay over the top; sprinkle with brown crumbs, and bake for about 20 or 30 minutes.
