  • 2 cup(s) Macaroni Uncooked
  • 2 cup(s) Hot water
  • 1/3 cup(s) butter
  • 3/4 teaspoon(s) Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) Pepper
  • 1 1/4 cup(s) Milk

  1. Mix macaroni, water, butter, salt and pepper in 2-quart covered casserole. Cover tightly; microwave on high (100%) 5 minutes; stir. Cover tightly and microwave on medium (50%) to boiling, 4 to 6 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients. Cover tightly and microwave on high, stirring every 4 minutes, until mixture is bubbly and macaroni is tender, 10 to 12 minutes.

  2. Alternate method: Cook macaroni according to package directions to al dente. Drain. In covered casserole, combine butter, salt, pepper, and flour. Cook 2 minutes on high; stir resulting roux with whisk. Blend in milk slowly. Return covered to microwave and heat on high 2 minutes. Whisk again. Blend in cheese. Heat 4 minutes. Add drained macaroni, stirring thoroughly. Heat 4 minutes until mixture is bubbly.
