Frugal Easy Macaroni and Cheese

Actually, I'm not sure if this is frugal.....I do know that the ingredients are better for you than boxed macaroni and cheese, however.  I can pronounce them!!!  :)

My mother found this old recipe book that came from the gas company years ago.  She brought it over for me to look at....we laughed because the book was entitled "New Dimensions in Modern Living"....I'm not even sure what era it was from, maybe the 70's, but it sure wasn't "modern" anymore!  :)  The recipe that I discovered is very good and easy to make, so I thought I would share it with all of you....

Easy Macaroni and Cheese
3 tbsp. butter or margarine
2 1/2 cups uncooked macaroni
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 quart milk
Melt butter and pour into a 12 x 8 inch baking dish.  Add uncooked macaroni and stir until butter coats macaroni thoroughly.  Sprinkle salt, pepper and cheese over top.  Pour milk over all.

Bake uncovered in a 325* oven for 1 hour.  Serves 8.

 Yummy, cheesy goodness!

This was a hit with my family.  The best part for me was not having to cook the pasta first!  :) 

The less steps in cooking, the better for me!
