I love this mac and cheese. It's my families favorite.
Cook the noodles al dente'. American cheese is the key to this recipe. I've tried other cheeses but they just don't work as well. Lately it has been hard to find in blocks. I get the unwrapped sliced kind and just grate that. It doesn't have to be perfect. Allow 20 min. covered loosely to set up after it comes out of the oven.
Cooking spray for pan
1 lb elbow noodles cooked according to package directions
1 lb american cheese shredded
1 qt half and half
S & P to taste
2 tbls butter cut up
Preheat oven to 350*
In a 9" x 13" pan sprayed with cooking spray, mix cooked noodles, shredded cheese, and half and half. Season lightly with S & P, and dot with butter. Bake @ 350* for 1 hour. Remove and let it set up for 10 to 20 min covered loosely.
I hope you like it.
