Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 250°F (120°C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Add the garlic cloves to a medium baking dish and cover completely with olive oil. Cover the dish with foil and bake for about 2 hours, or until the garlic cloves are deep golden brown and tender. Set aside to cool.
  3. Increase the oven temperature to 350˚F (180˚C).
  4. In a large pot or Dutch oven, cook the pasta in heavily salted water according to the package directions. Drain and return the pasta to the warm pot.
  5. Add the butter to the warm pasta and mix until the butter is melted. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Stir in half of the cheddar cheese, mozzarella, Provolone, Gouda, and feta until combined.
  7. Mix in the evaporated milk and eggs until incorporated. Gently stir in the garlic confit cloves.
  8. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish and top with the remaining 1 cup cheddar cheese.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, until bubbly and nicely browned on top.
