Secret to recipe - be sure to cube the cheese, then you will have nice cheesey pockets of cheese throughout the casserole. If you shred the cheese, it has a tendency to be somewhat dry. Also, add extra milk. It needs to be pretty soupy going into the oven to not get too dry. Very good.

"I just made this today! It was my first time ever making macaroni and cheese and I thought I would make a little "love-in-a-dish" for my husband before he got called in to work (we're newlyweds of course)! He loved it and was very impressed! Seeing how much he enjoyed each spoonful totally made my day! I look forward to making it for the next Family Holiday Dinner!"
