What a great dish! I always use exclusively sharp cheddar cheese. I bake mine in the oven for about 45-55 minutes at 350. Occasionally I add some diced onion as well.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (16 ounce) package elbow macaroni
  • 32 ounces cheese (for those who dont get Gov't food a block of your favorite cheese will do)
  • 2 cups milk
  • salt and pepper


  1. first you want to take the block of cheese and cut about 1 1/2 to 2 inches of the cheese. For ease of melting cube into small pieces.
  2. Bring water to boil and add macaroni and follow direction according to packaging.
  3. When macaroni is done about 8-10 minutes drain.
  4. In the same pot heat the milk to a simmer and add the cubed cheese. Takes about 5 minutes to melt. Add the macaroni.
  5. If there are still small lumps of cheese that's fine. They should finish melting by the time to eat if not its a nice surprise.
  6. Let stand for about 5 minutes for sauce to thicken. Should be thick and creamy.
