While looking through an old copy of Reader's Diagest, I came accross a recipe for single-serve mac and cheese. We had tried the store bought kind before, but felt it fell a little short of desirability. So...we tried this! It really is quite an easy recipe.
Combine 1/2 cup pasta, 1/2 cup water, and 1/2 tsp. salt in a microwave-safe bowl.
Microwave on high in two minute intervals, stirring between each, until pasta is al dente, 6 to 8 minutes. (Add 2 Tbs. water, if needed, to fully cook pasta.)
Stir in 1/4 cup of milk and...
1/2 cup of shredded cheese (they recommend cheddar, we used itallian blend and colby). Stir.
Microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring between each, until...
the cheese melts into a rich sauce.
My daughter liked it so much she did not even want to look up at the camera!
When I asked my son if it was yummy, he made kissy face at me!
Needless to say, we will be making this recipe again!
