 Ingredients

  •     1/3 cup small macaroni elbow noodles (uncooked)
  •     a scant 1/2 cup water
  •     a scant 1/4 cup milk
  •     1/2 cup pre-packaged finely shredded cheese (we like a cheddar/jack blend)

Instructions

  1.     Put the macaroni and the water into a mug. Microwave on full power for 2 minutes. Stir. (Note: the water will boil over just a bit, that is fine)
  2.     Microwave for another minute. Stir.
  3.     Microwave for a fourth minute, and then check to see that all the water has been absorbed. If not, microwave a bit more, until it is gone.
  4.     Stir in the milk and shredded cheese and microwave for a final 30-60 seconds. Stir well, and enjoy.

Notes

  • If you are grating your own cheese, try adding a pinch (1/8 tsp) of cornstarch to the milk.
