Baked Pasta: Grandma's Macaroni

Everyone in their kitchen makes some version of baked pasta with cheese… But my kids only recognize the ones my mom makes. I had to go back to "school" and watch word for word how she made them, because of course mine weren't even close to my grandmother's. My kids can eat this literally for lunch, breakfast, dinner and snacks.
