- 50 ml skim milk
- salt and pepper
- 200 g cheddar cheese (grated)
- Place first portion of milk in a 2L capacity microwave bowl and heat on high power until boiling (approx 14 minutes, but watch very carefully toward the end, or it will boil over VERY quickly!).

- Add 2nd portion of milk, flour, chicken stock and seasoning to a shaker & shake til mixed. Add to boiled milk in jug and microwave again on high until boiling again.
- Add most of the grated cheese to the milk mixture (which should now be thickened) and pour over pasta in oven proof serving dish.

- Serve with a salad, or you can add frozen peas/carrots/etc to the pasta while cooking if wanted. You can also add cooked bacon or ham to the recipe (add to pasta once drained, just before mixing with cheese sauce).
