Recipe: Comfort Food Mac & Cheese

8 ou. Ziti, cooked al dente and drained
10 ou. Velveeta Cheese, cubed
2 eggs (or 2 whites and 1 yolk)
2 cups milk (I used 1%)
2 tsp season salt
1/2 cup (or more!) cheddar or colby jack

In 3 quart casserole, spray with nonstick oil then layer ziti and Velveeta. Repeat. It will look skimpy but the pasta will absorb and expand. 

Mix milk, seasonings, eggs together and pour over top. Cover with cheddar or colby jack cheese. Bake at 350 for 45-55 minutes or until golden brown and the filling looks firm or "set." Let cool 2 minutes before serving.
