Mac-A-Roni and CHEESE

Every Penning knows this dish, it has been a staple of our family for many many years!

2lbs Mac-a-roni noodles (Elbow)
2lbs Mild cheddar cheese
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)

Cook time: 1hr Serves: 8-12 Prep time: 30 min
Pre-heat oven to 350*
Follow directions on the bag to boil the noodles while
noodles are boiling cut the cheese into cubes, and slice
the whole stick of butter into thin slices. Once noodles
are done drain water and set aside. Spray a large casserole
dish with non-stick pam. Now it's time to layer.
First, dump half the noodles in the dish.
Second, lay half the stick of butter over top the noodles.
Third, layer half the cubed cheese on top. Fourth, sprinkle
salt and pepper to your own taste. Then repeat! Once your
done pour milk into the dish. Pour milk until you can just
barely see it through the noodles.

Serve with fruit jello

1 large box jello of your choice
1 can fruit cocktail

Follow jello directions after you finish the jello before
you put it in the fridge add the draind fruit cocktail. Then put
