    I received this in a recipe email I get from world wipe recipes. It sounds pretty good.

    It's hard to imagine improving on the classic macaroni and cheese,
    but once you try this recipe you'll agree that the added time
    required to make this version is well worth the wait. "The Best
    America Recipes, 2005-2006" lists this as a main dish, but I offer
    it here as a side dish. If you plan to make this the main event, you
    may want to double the recipe.

    Overnight Macaroni and Cheese

    8 oz (225 g) elbow macaroni
    1 1/4 cups (310 ml) milk
    2 cups (500 ml) heavy cream
    1 cup (250 ml) grated Gruyere cheese
    Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

    Cook the macaroni in boiling salted water until it is only about
    half-cooked, about 4 minutes. Drain and cool under running water.
    Combine the macaroni with the milk, cream, half the cheese,
    salt, and pepper in a bowl, tossing to combine. Refrigerate
    covered for 24 hours - the pasta will absorb the liquid and expand.
    Place the pasta mixture in a greased 2-quart (2 L) baking dish,
    top with the remaining cheese, and cook in a preheated 400F
    (200C) oven until golden brown on top, 15 to 20 minutes. Serves
    4 to 6 as a side dish, 2 to 3 as a main dish.
