Add a good 3-4 cups of milk all at once. Bring to boil. If it is too thick add more milk. If you want it richer, add cream. Shred whatever cheese you have on hand and add to sauce. I use whatever I've got around. American, cheddar, swiss, parmesan etc....
Depending on what your family likes you can add tomatoes, hot sauce, cooked onions etc....
Mix together with the pasta of your choice and bake. You can mix some bread crumbs with butter and sprinkle on top if you like a crust.

Sorry no real recipe but this is one of those dishes that I just shoot from the hip.

This is exactly the way my family makes it!   The mix of different types of cheese always made it taste delish - I particularly liked a good balance of mild cheddar, sharp cheddar, and swiss. 

The only tips I'd add would be to have your casserole ready with the cooked pasta in it, don't stop whisking the sauce until the cheese is thoroughly melted, then pour it right in and mix it.  I don't put the oven higher than 375 because otherwise it dries out, and if you don't want that crunchy brownish crust just cover it with foil.

Happy eating!
