  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add macaroni and cook for 10 to 13 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  3. In a bowl mix together the eggs, milk, and pepper. In a casserole dish, place about a third of the cooked macaroni in one layer, sprinkle with 1/2 of the cheese, then layer the rest of the macaroni and cover with the remaining cheese. Coat evenly with the egg-milk mixture. Lastly, cut slices of butter and place them on top of the cheese.
  4. Bake in a preheated oven for 30 minutes or until the cheese is completely melted.

I think this recipe is really good and easy. A little rich because of the butter on top I think, but otherwise delicious. If you're looking for a creamy "kraft mac and cheese" recipe, this isn't it. This is more of a pasta bake.

I was so excited to make homemade macaroni and cheese for the first time for my new husband when I tried this recipe. However, I was pretty disappointed with the results. Mine came out very dry and wasn't flavorful. Some spots were cheesy and others just had the egg mixture on it. It needs something to make it creamier and cheesier.

This was good. I cooked it for thanksgiving. It was easy to make. I did change it a bit though using spaghetti noodles instead and added dry mustard.

The recipe came out to be really dry and it seems like it needs more wasn't cheesy enough.

I was a little nervous about this because I didn't have enough cheese on hand, but it still turned out really good and my picky six year old just loved it.
