5 Minute Mac and Cheese in the Microwave

Don't be skeptical...this is delicious.  The "five minutes" does not count the cooking of the noodles but the preparation of the cheese sauce. There is no flour or butter in this recipe, which I loved. I found this recipe on Pinterest and it is from the blog Picky Plate!

8 oz of cooked pasta
1 cup of whole milk
2 cups of shredded cheese
1/2 tsp salt (original recipe called for 3/4 tsp, I thought 1/2 was plenty)
1/2 tsp pepper

Cook pasta according to the directions on the package.  After pasta has been drained, place it in a microwavable bowl and add in the milk, cheese, salt, and pepper.  Stir together.  Microwave on high for three minutes.  Remove from the microwave and stir then microwave for another 2 minutes.
