Homemade Instant Mac & Cheese Recipe



Here’s a quick and efficient way to make Mac & Cheese when you’re in a hurry, right in the microwave.  This doesn’t even taste like it was made in the microwave.


What You Will Need:

–   ½ cup of shredded cheddar cheese

–   1/3 cup of pasta

–   ½ cup of water

–   ¼ tsp of dry mustard

–   ¼ cup of 2% milk (I’ve tried this recipe with 1% and it tasted just as good)


What You Will Need to do:

1.   Place the pasta and water into a medium sized, microwaveable bowl.

2.   Microwave for two minutes, stir and repeat for another 4-6 minutes or until all the water has absorbed.

3.   Now remove from the microwave and stir in the milk, dry mustard and cheese.

4.   Place the container back into the microwave.  Heat up for another minute, stir and repeat until the cheese has completely melted.
