  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheese I used cheddar, monterey jack works well too
  • 1 tbsp milk if desired for extra creaminess


  • In a large microwave safe mug place macaroni, salt, and water. Place a larger plate or bowl underneath your mug because it will boil over.

  • When you macaroni is cooked there should be 1 -2 tablespoons of liquid in the bottom of you mug, this is good! Stir in your cheese and milk if you desire.
