Introduction: Mac and Cheese, Top Ramen Style!
Mac and Cheese for those that don't feel like boiling water.
I find this recipe far better than "in the box" mac and cheese, and it takes a little less time.
I got the inspiration for this looking at other recipes for top ramen here on instructables. and wanted to improve it in to something truly great, and I think I may have just done it
P.S this is my first Instructable so be as nondescript and condescending as you can in you criticism.
thank you :P
Step 1: The Stuff You Need.
To start out you will need.
1 Brick of Velveeta cheese.
1 Pack of chicken top ramen (I have never tried other flavors, so experiment if you like)
2 Bowls of near the same size.
Step 2: Cooking the Noodles.
The first thing you want to do is open the noodles and take out the flavor pack, SAVE THIS!
You will need it a little later.
Next brake up the noodles up in the bowl, note the smaller you break up the noodles, the easier a latter step will be.
Now cover with water and put in the microwave for 4 minutes( depending on the power of your microwave )
Step 3: The "cheese"
Now its time for the cheese(if you can call it that)
You can use as much or as little as you would like, most of the time i put in about 1/2 to 2/3 of an inch of velveeta.
Step 4: Draining the Noodles.
This next step will a bit hard to fellow, but try to stay with me.
There is a two part draining procedure, first take the noodles out of the microwave and cover with your other bowl, and drain over the sink.
Now you don't have to get all the water out, I would stay stop draining at about a trickle.
Now take the noodles back over to the counter and add the flavor pack, all of it.
After stirring in the seasoning, cover the noodles again with water, and re drain, this time getting most of the water out.
You will end up with perfectly seasoned noodles, now if you did not have any cheese on hand you could just eat it now, and its pretty good, but lets move on to the last steps.
Step 5: The Cheese!
At this point you will add the cheese, break the cheese up into little bits so it can melt better.
Than throw the bowl back in to the microwave and set it for 1:OO to 1:3O minutes.
Take it out of the microwave stir up the cheese and noodles.(happy that you broke up the noodles good?)
Eat and enjoy.
