Ingredients

1 box
any type of pasta (shells, rotini, capellini are my favorite)
1 1/2 c
milk or heavy cream
12 oz
velveeta cheese
1/2 to 1 c
cheddar cheese to desire (i use whatever is in the fridge)
1/2 lb
bacon or ham (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Start the pasta, follow directions on box for your desired tenderness.
2
In a medium size sauce pan, pour your milk or cream. Cube velveeta for easier, more consistent melting. Over medium heat melt the velveeta in the milk/cream. After the velveeta melts add your additional cheese.
3
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
4
Drain the pasta. In the larger pot mix the pasta and the cheese sauce. At this point you can add any mix-ins. I will either add 1/2 pound of bacon or ham (optional).
5
Grease 2 qt casserole dish. Pour Macaroni and Cheese into casserole dish. Put casserole dish into pre-heated oven.
6
Bake for 15 mins. Cool for a few minutes before eating.
