macaroni & cheese in a cupThis method of making macaroni and cheese in a mug is not only way cheaper than buying a box of it, but it tastes so much better. Not to mention it cuts the time and effort of making it by 75 percent. I'm in love with this recipe!


Remember that macaroni comes in different sizes, shapes, and density, and microwaves have different wattages, so you may have to play with the amount of time you initially cook the pasta in the first couple steps.

Total Time: 6 minutes

Yield: 1 serving




  1. Place macaroni, water and salt in a microwaveable mug. Microwave for 3 minutes. Remove mug from microwave, stir pasta, then microwave another 2 minutes.
  2. pasta & water in cup
  3. Add milk and cheese. Stir and microwave another minute.
  4. cheese added to macaroni

  5. Stir, then add salt and pepper to taste.
  6. melted cheese and cooked macaroni

We are so tuned into each other! Did you make it? I hope it turned out well for you! This is now my go-to recipe for when I want to put mac and cheese INTO something, as it's way more sturdy and creamy (and yummy).
