Recipe of the Week: Mac and Cheese Bake

My little Ni loves pasta. I could feed it to her 3 times a day, 7 days a week and she would ever-so happily eat it and probably even want seconds. I make her mac and cheese right out of the box at least once a week. But have decided to try making a fresh casserole for lunch today. Of course, I’ve been looking for recipes on Pinterest and haven’t been able to find one that I truly like. So, I’m experimenting and hopefully it’ll turn out the way I want it to and will be toddler approved! Here’s what I’m doing:

Here’s what you need:

  • 3 cups elbow macaroni
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  •  1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/4 cup butter

Here’s what you do:

Boil macaroni in water until cooked. Set oven to 375°. Grease baking dish with butter or PAM, add the cooked pasta to the bottom of the dish. Add salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder.  Add 1 cup of cheese and layer more pasta on top. Layer again with remaining cheese and add slices of butter on top. Pour the milk over the top of the butter and cheese. Bake for 30-45 minutes uncovered. Remove from oven once cooked, let cool and then enjoy!
