Guy's Mac n' Cheese

I got this recipe from Guy's Big Bite on the Food Network (a channel that I am slightly addicted to). It is a fast mac & cheese, because no white sauce is involved, but I have to admit I like the creaminess of traditional macaroni and cheese. That said, this is a quick and easy recipe that I might use as a side dish in the future.

Guy's Mac n' Cheese
2 quarts water
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon oil
2 cups dry elbow macaroni
2 eggs
1, 12 oz can evaporated milk
1/4 cup butter, melted
freshly ground black pepper
16 oz shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 325.

Bring water, salt, and oil to a boil. Add pasta and bring back to a boil; cook until al dente, 8-9 minutes. Drain pasta and rinse with cold water.

In a large bowl mix together eggs, evaporated milk, melted butter and salt and pepper to taste. Add 3/4 of the cheese and add the pasta. Spray an 8x8 baking dish with non-stick spray and add the pasta mixture. Top with remaining cheese. Bake until cheese is golden and bubbly, about 30 minutes.
