  1. In a medium pot set over medium heat, combine milk, water, macaroni, salt, and pepper.
  2. Bring to a low simmer, stirring frequently to prevent the macaroni from clumping and the milk from boiling over.
  3. Once the mixture simmers, reduce heat to low (it should continue simmering) and stir continuously until pasta is done to your liking, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  4. The macaroni will absorb the liquid while cooking, so stir in additional milk as needed, 1/4 cup at a time.
  5. Once pasta is done and the sauce is creamy, remove the pot from the heat and gradually stir in the grated cheddar, until smooth and melted. Taste and add more salt and/or pepper, if necessary.
