Nancy's Macaroni & Cheese Casserole

Macaroni & Cheese

 Recipe by Nancy S.

Ingredients :

  • 1½ cups Macaroni
  • 2¾ cups Cheddar or Mimolette
  • 1 Stick or 4 ounces Butter, (Real, not Margarine)
  • 3 to 4 cups Milk

Preparation :
Cook & Drain Pasta.
Cut 2¼ cups of Cheese into ½'' chunks or cubes, reserving ½ cup for topping.
Use a 9'' x 11'' x 2'' oven casserole dish & grease dish with Butter or spray with ''Pam''.
In a large bowl, with Macaroni still freshly ''Hot'', stir Macaroni, remaining Butter, Cheese chunks & a splash of Milk together until ''stringy'' (in cooler climates, you may need to heat mixture slightly in microwave to maintain warmth), then spread into casserole dish.
Fill casserole with Milk until it reaches just to the top of mixture.
Press down lightly on mixture to force air out of the Macaroni & allow them to fill with milk.
Add more Milk until it reaches just to the top of mixture again.
With remaining Cheese, grate over the top & covered entire surface.
Bake at 350° F for 40 minutes to 1 hour, until top begins to darken & crisp & milk is absorbed.

Serve hot with main dish.

Hint from Nancy :
Freezes well & can be heated in microwave for future meals.
