The most popular and the most favourite kids meal 😀. I made it with a slight twist. Here it is :

1/2 cup raw maccoroni noodles (i used Annies's organic noodles..)
1/2 pack of cheddar cheese that comes with Annie noodles.
1/4 cup whole milk
1 tbsp butter
Salt and black pepper to taste.

1. Boil the noodles in pressure cooker - yes, you heard it right. Please check "Tip of the day" at the end of this post.
2. Once the pressure cooker is ready, take a pan with butter, and pour the boiled noodles in the pan, add cheddar cheese powder, milk, salt and black pepper and stir it until the milk absorbs.

Thats it, very easy, quick and eco friendly kids favourite macncheese ready... And my little darling Vihaan loves it 😍.

Tip of the day :
Pressure cook the pasta :
No need to boil pasta/maccoroni noodles in an open pot and strain it!
In a steel bowl, take ur noodles and pour water just to dip them. Pressure cook them little more than you make for dal (lentils). Eg: For my pressure cooker, it takes 12 whistles for pasta ( while it takes 8 whistles for dal). Easy way and saving water
