1Cook your macaroni as directed by instructions on the box. Drain and mix with 3 tablespoons of butter.

5Now, blend the mixture with the macaroni.
6Spoon the mixture into a casserole dish, sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. ( I used a 10 inch deep dish pie plate ) fits perfectly.

Preheat oven to 350 degree F.
