Prepare macaroni according to box directions--drain but DO NOT rinse. In a saucepan add cornstarch, salt, mustard, pepper, evaporated milk, water and butter--cook/stir over medium heat. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, cook/stir for 1 more minute. Remove from heat--add 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese--stir until smooth. Pour the milk mixture over the drained macaroni--stir well. Pour the whole macaroni mixture into a greased 2 quart casserole dish. Sprinkle the other 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese over the top. Bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned.
