Pintern Summer Challenge: Macaroni & Cheese in a Mug

Next blogger up is Myles of Berklee College of Music! He decided to go with this simple and delicious recipe-in-a-mug.

***

Yesterday I was in the mood for creamy Macaroni and Cheese, but only had 10 minutes before I had to run out the door. So I went right on to Pinterest and found this great recipe that took a little over 4 minutes. Plus, it only has a few ingredients and it’s much healthier than store bought box brand. The most important thing you need is a Mug. You have to try this recipe out! There’s nothing wrong with a little bit of comforting and creamy Macaroni and Cheese once in blue moon.

**Instead of the Whole grain elbow macaroni (used in the pin), I used medium shells and it came out just as delicious.

What You’ll Need:

A large mug or bowl (I use a big soup mug)
Whole grain elbow macaroni
Water
Cheddar-Jack Shredded Cheese
Splash of milk
 

What You’ll Do:

1. In a microwave safe {big} mug or bowl (make sure it is a big one or it will boil over), put 1/3 cup whole grain elbow macaroni and 1/3 cup + 1/4 cup water (If you have a stronger microwave than mine, you may need more water… just play with it adding a couple extra Tbs at a time). Microwave for 6 minutes, stirring at 4 minutes, 2 minutes, and 1 minute.

2. The pasta should be cooked and there will be a tiny bit of thick pasta water in the bottom. Leave this water.  Then add a heaping 1/3-cup shredded Cheddar Jack cheese (pictured below). Return to the microwave for 30 to 45 seconds to melt the cheese.

3. Stir well, adding a small splash of milk (maybe 2 teaspoons). Once it is all stirred together you should have a delicious and creamy Macaroni and Cheese.
