Baked Macaroni and Cheese

A wonderful comfort food. You can add chopped ham and peas, too! Cut down on the cooking time by using a can of evaporated milk for the milk.

How to Make Baked Macaroni and Cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Rinse cooked macaroni with cold water and place in a 3 quart baking dish or 13x9 inch pan.

  3. Reserve 1 cup of cheddar cheese and add the rest to the sauce, stir into the sauce until melted.
  4. Pour sauce over macaroni and mix thoroughly. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. (You could also sprinkle on a little parmesan cheese if you like.)
