A quick Mac and Cheese in the Microwave

After L left, I found a big packet macaroni and cubes of cheese that I know I will have to consume - V does not like pasta or cheese - and today since I had to make dinner just for myself, I looked for something simple to make.  I have always had a problem making a good white sauce and this recipe that I found at Picky-palate could not have been simpler.  And it worked well too.


Ingredients:
Macaroni - 100 gms  ( cooked al dente )
Cheese - cheddar - grated - as much as you would like
Milk - 1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Pepper - to taste
Italian herb seasoning ( optional) - to taste

Just a few simple steps to a quick meal -
1. Take a microwave safe bowl.
2. Put in the macaroni, cheese, milk, salt, pepper, seasoning in the bowl.  Mix well
3. Cover lightly with a plastic wrap
4. Cook first for 3 minutes.  Keep an eye on it, just in case your bowl is not deep enough the mixture
     may overflow
5. Then again for another 2 minutes till the mixture gets creamy and smooth

(The more cheese you have the better your mac and cheese will be. I did not go overboard with this one here )

You could add a few cooked veggies to it.  A pinch of mustard powder is also said to enhance the taste.  Garnish and serve.
