Easy Peasy Mac and Cheese-y

14 Nov

Avert your eyes, Nana… I’m about to make Mac and Cheese in the microwave.

Full disclosure: this is not your family’s homemade baked macaroni and cheese. It also lacks the Kraft surprises you secretly enjoy like the tiny bit of butter that never melted or a bite of powdered cheese cluster. However, it is fast, super easy, and you probably already have all the ingredients. You also cook the pasta in the microwave, which I, naively, didn’t even know was possible. If you prefer to boil pasta the old-fashioned way, just start with Step 3 below.

Easy Peasy Mac and Cheese-y

Ingredients for a Single Serving*

  • 1/3 cup pasta
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese

Process

  1. Combine the pasta and water in a large microwave-safe bowl
  2. Heat for 2 minutes, Stir, Repeat until the water is absorbed and pasta is cooked. (For reference, I “repeated” three times, but I also own the first microwave ever invented.)
  3. Stir in milk and cheese
  4. Heat for another minute or so.
  5. Mix well and enjoy!

*My husband learned the hard way that “winging it” with the ingredient measurements doesn’t work for this recipe. You’ve been warned.
