Mama's Ultimate Mac & Cheese

1 box (16 oz) rotini noodles
1 lb. (1/2 block) Velveeta or another brand of processed cheese spread, cubed
1 stick of butter
3 cups of whole milk
2 cups of any type of shredded cheese
Bring salted water to a boil.  Add 1 box or 16 oz. of rotini noodles.  Boil for about 5 min. and then turn off.  You want to make sure and cook the noodles al dente and not overcook them.  Let noodles sit in the hot water until you finish cutting up the Velveeta. Cut up 1/2 block or 1 lb. Velveeta or another brand of cheese spread.  Once noodles are al dente, drain water off of them.  Add noodles back to cooking pan.  Add 1 stick of butter to pan with noodles.  Let butter melt in noodles.  Cook noodles and butter on low heat to melt butter all the way.  Continue cooking and stirring on low heat and add 3 cups milk and 1/2 block of cubed Velveeta.  Let cheese melt in noodles.  When cheese is almost melted, add 2 cups of any kind of shredded cheese.  Mozzarella and cheddar make a good combination.  Melt all cheeses in noodles, forming a cheese sauce.  Continue stirring, so nothing sticks to the bottom of the pan.  Once butter and all cheeses are totally melted and no longer stringy, add noodles and cheese sauce to a serving dish.  Enjoy!
