Creamy Macaroni and Cheese
Layered Macaroni and Cheese
16 ounces elbow macaroni
4 cups (16 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese - divided
1 1/2 cups milk
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 2 quart baking dish with cooking spray.
Cook macaroni in salted water - remember to season as you assemble
Layer 1/3 of the macaroni in baking dish. Sprinkle with 1 1/2 cups grated cheese. Please grate your cheese. The quality and taste are so much better than the pre shredded packages. Repeat layers; top with remaining macaroni. Reserve remaining one cup cheese.
In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt and pepper until blended. Pour over macaroni.
Cover and bake 45 minutes or until heated thoroughly. Uncover and sprinkle the remaining cheese. Cover and let stand 10 minutes before serving.
