  • To make white sauce pasta 
  • Add cheese and mayo instead of pizza  pasta sauce. 
  • Addition of mozzarella cheese for a better taste. 
  • Vegetables are totally optional as per choice but finely chop the vegetables if using as the cooking time is very less here. 


1. Make the pasta in a large wide mug that has about 2-cup capacity. The wider and deeper the mug is, the less likely it will overspill when you cook in the microwave. 

2. Stir the pasta frequently while cooking with the water. This will help avoid chunky pasta and make sure that all the pasta is equally cooked.
