Easy Stove Top Macaroni & Cheese for One or Two

10 mins (prep 10)
7 ingredients
1-2 servings
This is one of my favorite week night dinners. I usually eat the whole thing myself since I live on my own, but it could be shared as a side dish. This recipe is easy to change up by substituting a different cheese or vegetable, or using different shapes of pasta (or filled pasta, such as tortellini). Try an Italian blend with Parmesan for an easy Alfredo. I also like to sprinkle on some bacon bits at the end before putting it in the oven.
