Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to the boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
Grease a 2 litre baking dish. Place a quarter of the macaroni in the bottom, followed by an even layer of one-quarter of the cheese slices. Dot with butter and season with salt and pepper. Repeat layering three times. Pour evaporated milk evenly over the top.
Bake, uncovered, for 1 hour or until top is golden brown.
I tried this recipe yesterday, and was really impressed at how easy it was, as I usually make the sauce on the hob. I will no longer be using my hob for this dish. I also added bacon strips to one layer and reduced the cooking time to 40 mins. Everyone loved it, next time I will add onions so the veggies can eat it. - 27 Jun 2013
Absolutely loved this recipe...also added some semi skinned milk, bacon and roast chicken pieces and sprinkled breadcrumbs on top as suggested by a previous reviewer. Will definitely do again. - 25 Mar 2014
