Easy Macaroni and Cheese

Here's a recipe my mom used to make for me when I was a girl. Our girls like it even better than the Kraft version. 


16 oz. elbow macaroni, uncooked
4 quarts water
1 teaspoon sea salt
5 tablespoons butter
1 cup milk
10 oz. cheese loaf, cubed (like Velveeta)
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded 
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper


In large saucepan, bring water to a rapid boil. Add salt and macaroni. Boil 9-11 minutes until tender. Drain. In same saucepan, melt butter. Add milk, cheese cubes, and cheddar cheese. Cook on medium low until cheese is melted. Add drained macaroni and mix well. Sprinkle with pepper. Serve warm. Enjoy!
