Pick a large bowl or mug than you think you'll need to account for the boiling water. Then spray the inside with cooking spray.


Add pasta and water to prepared bowl and microwave on high for 2 minutes. The water should be mostly absorbed.

If not. cook a little bit longer until there is almost no water left.

Stir in milk and cheese. Microwave in 30 second bursts until the cheese is melted and the pasta is cooked to your liking.
