In a nine inch pie pan, we add half of the pasta. On top of that, we add half of the cheese. We then add the other half of the pasta. Finally, we add the remaining cheese, the milk, and the dabs of butter.
We cover the macaroni with aluminum foil and bake for ten minutes. We lower the heat to 350 degrees and bake for an additional 30 minutes. Finally, we remove the foil and put the dish under the broiler for five minutes to get the top crispy.
