Traditional Macaroni and Cheese

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Margemommy

This is a delicious recipe I got with some carnation coupons. It is super easy. It was gone in a flash. I made a double batch the second time. MMM MMM GOOD!! It takes less time if you have your macaronit cooked and ready ahead of time.

I was looking for a mac and cheese recipe that used evaporated milk, since I had some opened.The recipe was made as written except for the cheese. I had to use part of sharp chedder and part of a casserole blend.Since we like a really crusty top, the mac and cheese was baked just a little bit over the 25 minutes.To us it had the perfect amount of creaminess, and just the right amount of seasonings.This will be made again.Thanks for posting, and "Keep Smiling :)"
