Macaroni and Cheese

Mac and Cheese is a quick and easy dish to make, and incredibly satisfying by itself or as a side to another meal.

Serves: 2

Time: 30 minutes


    • 1/2 cup macaroni, uncooked
    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 1 tablespoon flour
    • salt and pepper, to taste
    • 1/4 cup skim milk powder
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 1/3 cup grated cheddar cheese
    • 2 tablespoons bread crumbs


Boil water in a saucepan and cook the macaroni until tender. Drain and rinse with cold water. While the pasta is cooking, melt the butter and blend in the flour, salt and pepper and skim milk powder. Gradually add water and stir. Cook until smooth and thick. Add the cheddar cheese and stir until the cheese is melted. Add the cooked macaroni to the cheese sauce. Heat the mix and serve immediately.
