Baked Macaroni

Baked Macaroni created by dojemi

I suggested using a glass dish because you can see how brown the casserole is getting (and brown is a good thing). My family loves the crispy sides and topping.

Ready In:
1hr 20mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 1 (16 ounce) box ziti pasta, cook per directions
  • 1 (16 ounce) box Velveeta cheese, cut in chunks
  • 12 cup butter (divided 1/4 cup and 1/4 cup)
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 12 cups milk or 1 1/2 cups nonfat milk
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • Ritz cracker
  • butter (to be mixed with the Ritz crackers)

directions

  • Mix together the flour, 1/4 cup butter and the milk.
  • Add cheese chunks and allow to melt (continually stirring and watching so cheese does not burn).
  • Add the salt and pepper.
  • Combine the ziti and cheese sauce.
  • Put into casserole dish (I use glass) which has been well buttered with the remaining 1/4 stick of butter (use it all).
  • Mix Ritz with enough butter to moisten the crackers (amount is entirely up to you, but make enough to cover the casserole completely) The more the better.
  • Bake@ 350 degrees for approximately1 hour.
  • Serve immediately.

    Horrible Directions. We’ll see how the food turns out. Don’t recommend these directions though.
