Ingredients

1 pkg
macaroni, elbow 1 lb.
2 can(s)
10 3/4 oz. cheddar cheese soups
2 can(s)
12 ox. evaporated milk
1 3/4 stick
butter or margarine
1 tsp
salt
1 tsp
pepper
6 c
cheddar cheese, shredded (med./extra sharp/combination)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350.
Cook pasta according to pasta directions just until done - you don't want it mushy, because it will absorb a little of the cheesy liquid in the oven.
Combine soup, evaporated milk, butter, salt, and pepper in a large microwaveable bowl. Cover with plastic wrap, leaving a small vent, and cook for 6-7 minutes until the butter is melted and the mixture is warm-to-hot throughout. (If making a half batch, 4 minutes in the microwave should do it).
2
In a large baking dish (minimum 9x13, smaller if halving the recipe), spread 1/3 of the cooked noodles. Top with 1/3 of the sauce. Sprinkle with 1/3 of the cheddar.
Repeat layers twice, ending with the cheese.
Bake for 40-45 minutes.

Let stand for 5 minutes before serving
