    sheepdoc's Note:

    Use any cheese you want. Today I used 4 cheese Mexican and blue. If I used bland cheese I'd add some sriracha or mustard. The bowl or mug has to be big enough so it doesn't boil over. Microwave time varies on watts.

      I'm afraid I was disappointed in this recipe. While the end result was just okay, the recipe has problems, I'd say. First off, the water needs salt. Second, I actually had to microwave the macaroni a total of 12 minutes and used a total of 6 Tbls water. Additionally, I had to increase the milk to 4 tsp. I probably won't make this again since it didn't really save me any more time than the stovetop mac I usually make and just wasn't as good. But thank you for posting this, anyway.

      This could not be simpler or tastier! I was intrigued by this recipe when I saw it, and had to try it. Well, I've been trying it ever since! I make this quite frequently and it satisfies my mac & cheese fix without going through a whole lot of trouble. I've added hot sauce, etc., and used different cheeses, as well. Very versatile! Thanks so much for sharing this keeper! Made for Rookie Recipe Tag Game.
