Meet your new go-to lunch — mac and cheese that can be made in a mug The View from Great Island
(The View from Great Island)

This recipe for “instant” macaroni and cheese uses real shredded cheddar, not the bright orange powder that comes with prepackaged microwavable mac and cheese. That alone makes it a win in our book.

Whip up this dish from The View from Great Island whenever you need some quick comfort food. It only requires four ingredients!

You will need:

  • 1/3 cup small macaroni elbow noodles
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup milk
  • ½ cup prepackaged finely shredded cheese (Sue of The View from Great Island recommends a cheddar/Jack blend)
