"I found this on the Kraft site, I like it because it's easy and quite good I also like the fact that I don't have to turn my stove top on but you could also cook it on top of the stove"

Really quite good for something that's made in the microwave, I can't say it's better than the stove top method but something I would make again, thanks!
