Easy Mac'n' cheese

This is a very simple recipe that can be made in minutes. It had saved me a lot of times when I couldn't think of anything for my daughter's lunchbox, or if I get up late and just have time to get my daughter ready for school. It is rich in calcium as it has loads of milk and cheese. It can be made more fibre rich by preparing this with whole grain macaroni.

Things you'll need:
Macaroni - 1 cup
Milk - 1/2 cup
Butter - 1/2 tbsp
Cheddar cheese - 1/2 cup shredded
salt - 1/2 tsp
Pepper - as required (optional)

Yield - 1 Serving


Boil 4 cups of water in a pan, add 1 tsp of salt and the macaroni. Cook the macaroni to desired consistency and drain the excess water.

Melt the butter in a pan, add the milk and mix. When the milk heats up, mix the cheese. After the cheese is completely melted, switch off the stove, add the salt, pepper (optional) , and the macaroni. Mix well, pack in a lunchbox or serve.
