Wicked Good Bacon Mac & Cheese


Bacon-Mac-Cheese-300x225Ingredients:
1 (16-oz.) package penne pasta
1/4 cup butter
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
2-1/2 cups 2% reduced-fat milk
2 cups shredded Italian Five-Cheese
1 cup (8 oz.) shredded extra-sharp Cheddar Cheese
1 pkg extra thick bacon, cooked and diced well
Paprika (optional)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place bacon on tin-foil lined baking sheets and bake for 20-25 minutes. Once done, immediately remove bacon from the grease and pat dry. Be sure to leave the oven on for the pasta, if baking.
  3. Prepare pasta according to package directions. Drain pasta and pour into a 9×13 pan.
  4. Melt butter in a sauce pan over low heat. Whisk in flour and milk; cook over medium heat, whisking until mixture thickens and is bubbly. Remove from heat.
  5. Add cheeses, stirring until cheese melts and sauce is smooth.  Add bacon and mix well.
  6. Pour sauce over pasta and stir.  If desired, sprinkle more cheese (not cheddar), over pasta. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted/heated. Serve immediately.

    I’ve really noticed that repairing credit activity needs to be conducted with tactics. If not, you will probably find yourself destroying your standing. In order to succeed in fixing your credit score you have to ensure that from this second you pay all of your monthly dues promptly in advance of their slated date. It’s really significant given that by definitely not accomplishing this, all other activities that you will choose to use to improve your credit rank will not be useful. Thanks for sharing your strategies.
