    7       oz           Corkscrew macaroni -- uncooked
      1/2   c            Parmesan cheese -- grated
      1/2   ts           Italian seasoning
      1/8   ts           Garlic salt

   Cook the macaroni according to package directions, drain. Rinse with cold
   water, drain. Pat the moisture from the macaroni with paper towels. Combine
   the cheese, seasoning and garlic salt in a small bowl, and set aside. Heat

   a time in the hot oil until light brown about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. Stir to
   separate. Remove from oil with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
   Repeat until all of the cooked macaroni are fried. While the macaroni are
   still warm, sprinkle with the cheese mixture. Toss gently to coat evenly.
