Points to remember

  • Fill a third of a large, microwave-safe mug with dry macaroni and cover with double the volume of water.
  • Cover the mug with cling film and place it in a microwave-safe bowl. Pierce the cling film over the mug and put the whole lot in the microwave for 2 minutes.
  • The water will bubble up and out into the bowl, but just pour that back into the mug once the 2 minutes are up and repeat the process once more.
  • Once the macaroni is cooked, add the butter and cheese, plus Marmite if using. Stir until everything has melted and serve.
