One Pot Homemade Mac n' Cheese

I first got this recipe idea from my cousin. This is a much healthier version of boxed mac n' cheese that's full of nasty additives. This will take you no longer to make than a boxed version. Best of all, only one pot to wash! I am still experimenting a bit with it, but here's the recipe so far.

One Pot Mac n' Cheese

1 1/2 cups whole wheat macaroni
3/4 cup water
3/4 cup milk
2 Tbsp butter
1 cup shredded cheese
salt, pepper, paprika to taste

Cook the macaroni in the water and milk on medium heat until tender. Stir frequently or it will get stuck to the bottom. You might need to add a splash or two of milk if it absorbs to much before the macaroni is cooked. Stir in butter and cheese until melted. Sprinkle on some paprika to taste.
