Baked Macaroni and Cheese

"I've been making this for years. The topping is optional. Add more milk, if you like the cheese sauce to be runnier. Use all the little ends of the pieces of cheese in the cheese drawer. The more the merrier. I don't use blue, swiss, or mozarella, but anything else is fair game."
