Macaroni Hot Pot Recipe

‘Hot Pot’—kids like not just the name, but the dish as well. An age-old recipe that we liked as kids (and continue to like), and our kids are sure to love too. The small size and funny shape of macaroni catches kids’ attention and invites them to take a spoonful. Once they try it, the beans, ketchup and cheese work the remaining magic! interestingly, the microwave makes this delightful dish so much easier and quicker than before.
