Jason's Mac and Cheese

Tonight after going to the grocery store, Jason and I looked at each other wondering what we would have for dinner. We got tons of groceries, and I planned meals for the rest of the week but had not thought about tonight. We were so hungry it was hindering our ability to decide on dinner, then Jason suggested a good comfort meal - Mac and Cheese.

Jason does not like Boxed Mac and Cheese (I'll admit it's not the best but in a hurry it works). However tonight I told him I would make his favorite Mac and Cheese - a very simple recipe.

In a sauce pot of medium heat mix 1/2 cup of milk and 2 tablespoons of butter. As you heat the milk and butter begin adding American Cheese slices. Depending on how thick you want the sauce you will add between 10-20 slices, I also something add 1/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese. Continue to stir until the cheese is completely melted. Remove from heat when cheese is completely melted and combined.
In another pot fix 4 cups of pasta, this can be any kind of pasta - whatever you have extra in the cabinet (we had shells and elbow noodles because we didn't have enough of either one so we had to combine). Cook pasta in boiling water to desired tenderness (usually about 10-12 minutes).
Drain noodles and mix cheese sauce in. Salt and Pepper to desire. Allow noodles and cheese to stand for about 5 minutes to thicken the cheese sauce.
