Nanny's Simple Macaroni and Cheese

Recipe by MSZANZ
READY IN: 1hr 10mins




  • Boil pasta according to package in salted water.
  • For firmer pasta reduce boiling time by a few minutes.
  • Drain.
  • Grease a deep casserole dish (I use a spray).
  • Place a layer of macaroni, enough to cover the bottom, in the casserole dish.
  • Add a layer of cheese slices covering the macaroni.
  • Very lightly season with salt and pepper (I actually skip this and we add salt and pepper to taste on our individual servings).
  • Repeat these layers until you are out of pasta.
  • Pour milk over the casserole until the milk almost reaches the top of the casserole dish (It doesn't take much because the dish is already full of pasta and cheese).
  • Bake covered for about 45 minutes to an hour in a 350 degree oven.
  • You'll know it is finished cooking when the milk is no longer liquid.
  • Sometimes I add leftover ham chunks to the layers.
  • Cook time and servings are approximate!
