This 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


  • 1/2 cup dry elbow macaroni
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 Tbsp any milk
  • dash of salt
  • 1/3 cup shredded cheese


  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. Add milk and cheese. Stir and microwave another minute.
  3. Stir, then add salt and pepper to taste.
