Notes
*****You can easily cut this recipe in half. This easily makes 2-3 (11x13”) pans. You can make smaller pans and bake halfway through and then cover with foil and freeze. Defrost in refrigerator and heat in oven to finish cooking. If it is too thick you can add warm milk and stir before baking.
You can change up the cheese selection as well as pasta selection.
