An easy way is boil your noodles, add shredded cheese, milk and butter and bake until the top is just brown.

It's SOOOOOO good!

I didn't specify any type of cheese because everyone is different but here we love sharp and extra sharp :)

Baked Mac & Cheese (and you can adjust the cheese type/milk type to your needs)

1 lb box of pasta (shells, elbows, something that will hold that cheese!)
4 Tbsp good quality butter
1/4 cup whole wheat flour (can use all purpose flour)
2 cups raw milk
2 cups cubed raw cheddar
4 oz cubed organic cream cheese

Preheat oven to 350oF. Cook pasta according to directions. While that's going, melt butter over med-med/high heat. Once butter gets bubbly, add flour. Let that thicken and bubble, then add milk. Stir periodically until thickened, then add cheese. Take off heat as soon as cheese starts to melt.

Drain pasta then put back in pot and add cheese/roux mix. Mix thoroughly and put in 2.5Qt or bigger casserole dish. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

It tastes better if you can get sharp cheddar, but it's not always feasible when using raw. If you have no reason to avoid breadcrumbs, you can also add buttered breadcrumbs sprinkled on the top of the casserole before you put it in the oven.
