This is a very quick and easy version of macaroni and cheese. I would use skim or 1 % milk to lighten this up. The pasta should be drained before it is completely done to ensure that the consistency is good in the casserole. The pasta will continue to cook in the oven. Chopped onions that are browned would be a good addition to this recipe.

This is super a good recipe! We make this, and include 2 (cooked) chicken breasts (shredded), and 4 strips of crumbled bacon to this also. There are never any leftovers!

The recipies look wonderful I need to convert the ingredients to metric measure. Do you have a facility for this on your website?
