Once the water is boiling, add in the 3 cups of uncooked elbow macaroni pasta, and cook until it's nice and firm, but not overly cooked. Next, toss 4 tbsp of salted butter into a large sauce pan, and melt over medium heat. Once the butter is melted, sprinkle in 3 tbsp of all purpose flour. Whisk the flour with the butter, and make sure that there aren't any lumps. Add in 8 oz of shredded sharp cheddar cheese, and mix until well incorporated. Fold the macaroni and cheese sauce until everything is well incorporated.

Grab a 9x13 bake dish, and butter or lightly oil it. Combine the remaining shredded sharp cheddar cheese with the shredded mozzarella cheese. Add a layer of the macaroni and cheese at the bottom of the bake dish, then top with a heavy layer of cheese.

    You make cooking easy Christy! I have a recipe for scalloped potatoes that layers the ingredients just like that! Except it uses sliced potatoes instead of pasta. OMG this looks so yummy! BTW Christy. I meant to tell you I saw your column in the News Courier today. Love the apple dapple cake! Look forward to reading it each week.

    This looks so good. I have never baked my mac n cheese, but have had it at countless pot lucks and have wondered how to make it. I love mac and cheese, but mine is a bit hit or miss — sometimes really creamy and other times really dry. Am looking forward to trying your recipe.

    Am really enjoying your e-mails and the wonderful inspirational dishes. This is one of my favorite comfort foods. I have never tried it this way though. I have always did it the hard way. I think they like that better then the box.

    Well I guess that is wishful thinking on my part. It was yummy. Thanks for all the hard work you put into this. This looks really good. I have a version too. I remember when I was a little girl growing up in TN we always had this apple cake at our church potlucks. I know it had several layers and it was so yummy.
