Rebecca's notes for this recipe:
When we were growing up, Mama used to make the best homemade macaroni and cheese I ever ate. I really wish I had her recipe, but since I don’t, I made up my own. I take it to all the family dinners and receive rave reviews - but that's just because they never ate Mama's! It’s good, but not as good as Mama’s!

Directions

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2
Grease (or spray) a 9x12 baking pan or casserole dish (I like to use glass).
3
Cook pasta according to directions. After thoroughly draining the cooked pasta, return it to the pan (with burner off).
4
While pasta is still very hot, add milk, butter, Velveeta, cream cheese, salt and pepper. Stir until all items are melted and distributed evenly.
5
Pour half of the pasta into the baking pan and top with ½ of each of the remaining cheeses.
6
Add the remaining pasta and top with the remaining cheeses.
7
Cover pan (with lid or foil) and bake for 30 - 40 minutes until cheese are bubbly and beginning to turn golden brown.

I have made it this way and I have to say it is delish. I think the more kinds of cheeses you can use the better it makes it.
I alos like to sometimes put in provolone, baby swiss and baby gouda together with the 4-cheese mix.

I am going to try some of these different cheeses next time, Cindy - I love provolone. Was thinking of using smoked cheddar, too, to give it a bacony flavor. Thanks for the suggestions!

You are welcome, I bet smoked cheddar will be awesome.
