Brown beef with onions and garlic if desired and drain.
In pasta pot, mix all ingredients except 1 cup of cheese. Add more milk if desired.
Pour and level out into greased 9X11 pan. Top with remaining cheese and bake for 20-30 minutes or until cheese is melted to your liking.
This just came together from what I had around the house, feel free to use chicken, any type of pasta, any cream-style soup, any type of croutons or skip the croutons altogether, add veggies too if you'd like. The only thing that could botch this up is adding too much milk to where it wouldn't set up in the over.
