Easy Mac ‘n’ Cheese

This is a microwave recipe.
Preparation time: 10 min
Cooking time: 10 min
Serves: 4-6


250 g ground beef (or mutton, if preferred), boiled
1 cube of parmesan cheese
1 cube of butter
1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
salt, black pepper to taste
1 pack macaroni pasta


one large and one medium-sized pot
casserole dish with lid
cheese grater
wooden spoon


1. Meat:
Boil the ground beef in the medium-sized pot with salt and ginger-garlic paste.

2. Pasta:
Boil water in a large pot. Add pasta to the bubbling water and boil
until the pasta is softened but not pasty. Do not overcook. Strain the
pasta while running it under cold water. Throw some olive oil into it
and mix so that it does not stick.

3. Layers:
Rub the cube of butter on the bottom and edges of the casserole dish. Grate cheese directly over the bottom of the dish in a thin layer.
Spread a layer of macaroni over the cheese. Sprinkle some pepper over it.
Spread a thin layer of ground beef, followed by a layer of macaroni, and sprinkle it with pepper.
Grate cheese in a slightly thicker evenly over the macaroni.
Continue in this order: cheese, macaroni, pepper, beef, macaroni, pepper, cheese… until you reach the top of the dish.
Finally cover with one last thin layer of cheese.
Close the lid and microwave on high for five minutes. After five minutes, check to see if the cheese has begun to melt, and loosely turn a wooden spoon in the mixture. Microwave for five more minutes.


Be careful with the casserole dish, as it will be very hot. Turn a wooden spoon in the macaroni, cheese and ground beef until they are evenly mixed. Serve in the same dish.
