How to Make Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Spray 8x8 dish with Pam.
  2. Cook pasta to al dente, per instructions on box. Drain.
  3. Layer half of pasta on bottom of dish and dot with butter. Salt and pepper and layer with 1/2 the shredded cheese.
  4. Layer again with remaining pasta. Salt and pepper and sprinkle remaining cheese on top.
  5. Add milk to where it's just below the top layer of cheese.
    *Make sure you use whole milk - I've tried it using 2% and it doesn't cook right*
  6. Bake 45 minutes or until the top turns a golden brown. Remove from oven and let it set for about 10 minutes before serving.
  7. This is a good size for 2-3 people. I've made it for more people using a 9x13 dish. If you're going to use a 9x13 dish, use 2 1/2 cups pasta (I like elbow macaroni and small shells) and 16 oz. shredded cheddar cheese.
