Homey Homemade Mac and Cheese


Homey Homemade Mac and Cheese

Mclean in Sarah Dessen's What Happened to Goodbye struggles to find where she belongs. When she joins a group of friends for an impromptu dinner at one of their homes, Mclean realizes that it's been such a long time since she has sat around a table with a family, eating comfort foods like the southern meal of crisp chicken and homemade mac and cheese.  This recipe is a family favorite and with it's simple ingredients, it will soon become one of yours.

15 ounces uncooked elbow macaroni
2 cans cream of chicken soup
2 cups milk
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded or cubed
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded or cubed
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 350'. Boil the elbow macaroni according to package directions. Drain macaroni, and layer it in the bottom of an 8x8 pan. Combine the soups and the milk in a small bowl and stir into macaroni.  Add the cheeses, stirring until mixed. Salt and pepper to taste. Cover with tin foil and cook until the edges are bubbly, about 20 minutes.

Note: any combination of cheese can be used.
