Simple Mac and Cheese Recipe

Simple Mac and Cheese Recipe


If you are looking for something really quick when the kids get home from school, or you just need a quick side dish, give this Simple Mac and Cheese Recipe a try.

This recipe caught my eye because of the use of the microwave. Except for heating and defrosting I don’t use the microwave very often; but when I saw this recipe I thought it was worth giving it a try. You can pretty much have the cheese sauce done just on time to mix it into the macaroni when it comes off the stove. This Simple Mac and Cheese Recipe tastes great and requires no oven time. However this is a small recipe and you may wish to double it depending on the age, and number you are feeding. Enjoy
