Dinner in the Microwave

You are on a budget, and all the Albergue has for cooking is the microwave.  There is a small tienda open.  What to do?   Here is what.  Go shopping and buy or scrounge: 1 tomatoe, small 1 onion, small 1 clove (not head!) garlic Bread Macaroni Tomato paste (in the box or can- you just need about 1/4 cup Salt Oil would be great, or butter, or mayo in a pinch   In a microwaveable bowl, put: A couple of slices of onion, minced The garlic clove, minced The small tomatoe, minced A bit of oil and salt Barely cover with water Put some type of lid on it and cook on low until the onion is soft (about 4 minutes)   Now add about 1/4 cup of the tomatoe paste and half a cup of macaroni.  Just cover barely with water.  Put a lid on it. Use a napkin, a plastic lid or ??  Use your imagination. You just don't want it to splatter.    Now cook on medium for about 5 or more minutes. Keep checking it and stirring, and when the Mac is al dente, it is done.  My dinner tonight took 10 minutes and was sooooooooo good!  
I sliced some queso curado on top.
