Easiest and Cheesiest Stove Top Macaroni and Cheese

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by koontzhome5_10671557

This is my Grandmother's recipe. I have no idea where it originated, but I don't ever remember a family gathering growing up when this was not served. It is not a gourmet macaroni and cheese, but it is fast and good. The only thing anyone ever says after eating it is "May I have some more please?".

I tried this recipe and love it. Although, I used different noodles and had to substitute evaporated milk with half and half and whole milk.
