I believe the first of these is the one Ann was urging me to post.
Cheesey Elbow Pasta :)
Ingredients: maccaroni, water, cheese powder, butter, milk
Bring about a quart and a half of water to a boil and add about 7.25 oz of maccaroni.
Boil for about 7 minutes or until it's as tender as you like it, stirring occasionally.
Once it's soft enough for you, drain it.
Put 4 Tbsp of butter in the pot while you drain the pasta.
Put pasta back in the pot.
Add 1/4 cup milk and as much cheese powder as you want (this is often packaged in a handy amount and sold with the maccaroni).
Stir it up until the butter is melted and the cheese evenly distributed.
Serves 2 if they eat like me and there is no accompanying dish.
Naked Spaghetti ala Ed
This is how my friend Ed made his spaghetti. I found I like it this way too.
Bring about a quart and a half of water to a boil.
Add 1/2 lb. spaghetti broken in half
Boil the spaghetti until it's as tender as you like it.
Add olive oil, parmesan cheese, oregano, seasoned salt, crushed red pepper, and garlic powder in whatever amount you like.
Again, serves 1 with my appetite and no accompaniment other than a random can of veggies.
Including Ann's tuna cassarole recipe this covers 60% of my regular recipes.
