Homemade Mac 'n Cheese (the Microwave Version)

Earlier this week we wrote about how Hannah found her love of cooking through a Homemade Mac 'n Cheese recipe on the back of a pasta box.

Our friend Kathy shared on Facebook that she uses a similar recipe that can be whipped up in the microwave. Homemade goodness in the microwave?!? We're all over that! We haven't tried this recipe yet, but wanted to offer it up to you guys:

FYI - Kathy says it's a "make-it-up-as-you-go-along" kinda thing so feel free to customize as you'd like. Here's her recipe:

2 c. uncooked pasta of your choice (Whole Foods has a good vegetable rotini that we like - can't remember the brand)

2 c. sharp cheddar cheese, cubed

1 egg, beaten

1/4 to 1/3 c. milk (enough to cover the bottom of the casserole dish)

Salt and pepper to taste

Cook pasta according to package directions and drain. While it's cooking, combine milk, egg, cheese, salt and pepper in a medium-sized casserole dish. Add pasta, cover, and microwave on high for 5 minutes. Stir and serve. If you have a newer microwave, you may be able to reduce the cooking time. Ours is old. Serves 6 as a side dish.

Thanks Kathy!
