  • 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
  • 1 tsp
  • 6 c
    cheddar cheese, shredded (med./extra sharp/combination)

How to Make Awesome Mac and Cheese


  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
