Ingredients:
2 Cups Cooked Elbow Macaroni (It's about 1 cup raw, but what the hell...cook extra, leftover pasta in the fridge is like money in the bank)

Salt & Pepper to taste
1 Tablespoon butter or margarine for greasing the pan

  • Place a layer of macaroni in the bottom of the dish ( use 1/2 of the macaroni)
  • Cover the top of the pasta layer with sliced cheese
  • Repeat the layer with the remaining pasta
  • Add the remaining cheese to the top
  • In a separate bowl - beat together the Eggs and Milk until well combined, - about 2 minutes
  • Add salt and pepper to taste
  • Pour the custard mixture over the pasta and cheese
  • Top with the grated cheese
  • Bake in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes at 375 - (check at 25 minutes, stick a knife into the center of the dish, if it is still milky, check again every 5 minutes until the center is clean)
