What Gobles Gobble... Goble-mac

My husband poor lactose intolerant man that he is... occassinally needs to indulge to get back to his roots... being so far from home and sometimes having a desire to reconnect he suggests we make Macaroni and Cheese the way his grandma does... Its pretty simple really delicious and different from your standard mac because it kind of is what it says it is cooked pasta with cheese melted on it sticky and gooey not really creamy like ordinary mac and cheese but still uber satisfying... When we introduced it my family (The Elwell's) Kyle promptly dubbed it Goble-mac

The amounts are approximate there's a little bit of an art to it... I've become much better at it now that i'm officially a Goble...

1 lb of cooked pasta we usually use spiral/rotelle pasta
1 lb of cheese we usually use a combination of sharp cheddar and colby-jack
1/2 stick of butter its mac n cheese after all...
1/4 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350 F. Cook your pasta until tender in salted boiling water and drain. Cut cheese into thin slices. Layer pasta with cheese in casserole dish top with butter cut into pieces. Drizzle milk over entire pan. Bake 10-15 min and stir to help spread the melting cheese throughout the pasta. Bake an additional 10-15 min and stir again. Its usually done at this point all of the milk will be absorbed and the cheese should be evenly coating every noodle. It may take some good stirring and mixing but soon its a gooey cheesy noodley dish of decadence my husband can't ever say no to even tho he probably should....
