Really Easy Mac

As an act of protest against the amazing prevalence of Kraft Mac & Cheese products on my college campus, I threw together my own version, using real ingredients (and nothing in a nuclear orange color). Takes the same amount of time and tastes a million times better. So easy a recipe is really unnecessary!

Instructions

  1. 1Boil water and cook pasta according to instructions (I usually use two handfuls of noodles per person for short pasta)
  2. 2Drain noodles and toss with butter until butter has melted (doing this in the pah speeds things up)
  3. 3Grate cheese on top, season to taste with salt and pepper (I like to add red pepper flakes too)
  4. 4Enjoy real, grown up easy mac.
