Mac and Cheese In A Mug Recipe
Microwave the pasta in the microwave for 1 minute intervals (Place a plate underneath the mug as there is a good chance it will overflow). Checking the pasta every minute for consistency. It should take about 4 minutes before the pasta is soft, pour off the excess water/milk (optional).
Add the cheese and stir in.

Serve and Enjoy!
You can use different cheeses, in this recipe I just used a basic tasty cheese but don’t be afraid to experiment trying all sorts of nice cheeses.
If you feel like a bit meat in your mac and cheese try adding ham, smoked salmon and other deli meats that don’t require a huge amount of cooking.
Be extra careful when you microwave liquids as they can become superheated and explode when you go to remove it. Keeping a distance would be the best way to avoid any physical harm to yourself.
