We loved this Family Style BLT Mac and Cheese Recipe* including the kids, who normally don't like any mac and cheese unless it comes out of a box. Want to make this a well rounded dinner? Add some cooked chicken to it!
How to Make BLT Mac and Cheese
5 C. of Water
10 slices of Turkey Bacon
4 oz. White Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1 oz, Parmesan Cheese
4 oz. of Cream Cheese
1 lb. Rotini Pasta
1 tsp. of Salt
1/2 tsp. of Pepper
5 Green Onions
3 lg. Roma Tomatoes
Bring water to a boil in a 8 Qt. stockpot.
Meanwhile, slice bacon crosswise into thin strips; place in skillet and cook til crisp. Remove bacon and drain on a paper towel.
As the bacon cooks add Rotini Pasta, cream cheese, and other cheeses to pot of boiling water. Cover and simmer vigorously for 5 min. stirring occasionally.
Cook's Tip: When you add the cheeses at the same time, they get stuck to the bottom of the pot, you have to constantly stir. Maybe wait until pasta is nearly done to add the cheese.
As pasta mixture cooks, dice green onions, and then stir into pasta mixture.
Cook uncovered 5-7 minutes or until pasta is cooked to desired tenderness and sauce is thickened, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, cut tomatoes in half lengthwise remove cores. Dice tomatoes; reserve 1/4 C. for garnish.
Remove stockpot from heat; stir in remaining tomatoes and half of the bacon. Spoon pasta mixture into a serving bowl and garnish with reserved tomatoes and bacon.
Eat, the best mac and cheese ever!
