Cooking Tips:

Adding herbs can change this recipe completely with many different flavors to choose from don’t be afraid to experiment.
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.
