My Own Macaroni and Cheese

Recipe by  

"I am one of those people who never follows the recipe, so this recipe is great as it lends itself to that very well. It's also a great dish to throw in all the left over meat and veggies that you may have. Generally I add ingredients until it tastes good."

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.
  3. In large pot, cook macaroni pasta in boiling salted water with a pinch of basil and one teaspoon of olive oil until al dente. Rinse with cool water. Drain.

Icky.

Made this recipe and didn't really like it. I found the sauce didn't stick to the pasta which is what I generally like to see happen. I did add more bacon and more cheese. Don't think I'll be making this one again.

We didn't really like the carrots and bell pepper in this recipe. I am going to try it again using an onion and Velveeta.
