Pasta with Cheese Sauce (Microwave)

Um…. I have been staring at the computer screen for the past 10 minutes trying to come up with a good introduction for this post. But every time I look at the Cheesy Pasta, I fail to do justice to this sinful pleasure! 😀 So, I decided to just upload the pictures & get on with the recipe 🙂


Rotini Pasta is a type of helix shaped Pasta. The pasta came with a Pizza taste-maker. But I decided to make it with the cheese sauce.
