In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine the pasta and the water. Microwave on high for two minutes and then stir. Microwave for two more minutes, stir again. Microwave for 1-2 more minutes or until the water is absorbed and the pasta is cooked. Watch carefully so it does not burn.
Add milk and cheese, stir to combine. Return to microwave and heat in one minute intervals, stirring well between each interval until macaroni and cheese is thickened and creamy.
