What household does not like a classic macaroni and cheese casserole? I grew up with this recipe, and so did my mom, her mom and who knows how many moms back. Make extra because it heats up well the next day or so for lunches. This is seriously one of my FAVORITE recipes comes out SO tasty!!
Here’s what you need:
Large oven-safe casserole pan, even rectangular works
A package of large elbow Macaroni
Lot’s of your favorite shredded cheddar or jack cheese (or both)
Salt and Pepper
1 pound ground italian sausage (spicy is best)
Cook the macaroni to the “firm” direction on the bag, run cold water over and drain. Brown the ground sausage and drain.
Coat the pan with a little olive oil. Layer the macaroni, sausage and then cheese (lot’s) 2 to 3 times depending on how deep your dish is. Salt and pepper each layer according to your taste. Pour milk over the finished layers up to about half way up.
Bake at 350 covered for 45 minutes and then uncovered for 15 to 20 more. At this point you can add some bread crumbs on top if you want.
Enjoy!! Be sure to pin this one, it’s really is the BEST Mac & Cheese recipe I have had.
