Moonlight mac and cheese (best ever!)

So this one is truly from the Moonlight cook book. For those that don't know about Moonlight, it is a bbq place in Brent's hometown of Owesboro KY. Pres Clinton flew in a helicopter just to eat there. By far the best bbq I have ever had. This mac and cheese recipe is bar none the best. Just try it.

1 1/2 cup milk
2 cups raw elbow macaroni
1 cup grated velveta
1 cup grated cheddar
8 cups water
1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons salt
pinch pepper
1/4 cup butter

In a large saucepan add water and salt. Bring to a boil. Add macaroni. Cook until tender. Do not overcook. Drain macaroni and add butter. In a baking dish add a layer of macaroni then a layer of cheese. Layer remaining cheese and macaroni ending with a layer of cheese. Add 2 cups milk letting seep through but do not stir. add pepper to taste. Bake at 350 until cheese is brown and bubbling.

Seriously this is the best ever!
