ZENB Pasta Agile

ZENB Pasta Agile and cheese … yes please! One-Bowl Mac & Cheese will satisfy your late-night cravings. It is also a guilt-free snack that is an excellent source of protein and fiber.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2/3 cup uncooked Pasta Agile
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 cup shredded mild cheddar cheese
  • salt & ground black pepper

INSTRUCTIONS

1.

Combine pasta and water in medium microwavable bowl (at least 2-1/2 cup volume). Top with butter. Microwave on HIGH 2-2½ minutes, or until pasta is tender.

2.

Carefully remove bowl from microwave. Do not drain. Add cheese. Stir continuously for 15-20 seconds, until smooth sauce forms and pasta is evenly coated.

3.

Season to taste with salt & pepper.

Tasty Tips

The liquid remaining in the bowl after the microwave step helps to create the cheese sauce. Sauce will thicken upon standing.

For a cheesier dish, increase cheese to 1/3 cup.
