Alternative to Easy Mac. :0)

DD was at a friends house for dinner and so I made me and DS a bowl of Mac and cheese and of course had some fruit with it.... :0) I love this idea/recipe SO much I wanted to share it. Have you heard of this before? It works FANTASTICALLY. Follow it up with a one bowl brownie and you are set.

One-bowl mac and cheese in the microwave.

Ingredients

about 1/2 cup small pasta
1/2 cup water or so
about 1/4 cup milk
about 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
(I have not measured it in a long time. lol.)

In a bowl stir together the macaroni and water
Microwave on high for 1-2 minutes. Stir.
(repeat until noodles are tender. you can add a touch more water as needed)
You should still have about a table spoon of starchy water at the bottom. Leave it!!
Stir in milk and cheese.
Keep stirring until it gets creamy looking.
