Success! My first attempt at making Mac n’ Cheese in a mug! YAY! So happy it turned out. Perfect portion for one! ๐Ÿ™‚

Recipe Mac n’ Cheese in a Mug

Use a microwaveable mug or small bowl for this recipe.

Total time about 11-12 minutes

Ingredients:
1/2 cup pasta (I used Caparecce)
1 1/2 cup water
Pinch of salt
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream or milk
1/2 shredded cheese (I used mild cheddar)
1 tbls grated Parmesan
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
Shredded chicken (optional) add whatever you like ๐Ÿ™‚

Combine the pasta, water and salt into your mug or bowl. Place in the microwave to cook for the 3 minutes then take it out stir and place back in the microwave to cook for another 3-5 minutes until it’s slightly al dente. Remove from microwave, drain some of the pasta water then add cream and cheese, stir and place back in the microwave to cook for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes. When done remove add chicken or any kind of meat (bacon would have been great!) and mix well then top with Parmesan and pepper flakes.
