Morningstar Farms® Veggie Bacon Strips
dried elbow macaroni
fat-free half-and-half or milk
American cheese, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
chopped fresh parsley
I used real bacon and I used 1/2 cheddar and 1/2 smoked gouda like some other reviewers suggested. I almost made a half size dish since it was just for my son and me but I decided I might want leftovers so I made it full scale - that was a great decision b/c I KNOW I will want more tomorrow!
I did not enjoy this macaroni, although other family members did. It was not cheesy enough for me and the noodles became mushy and bland. Sorry!
This recipe is AWESOME! I had been looking for a good mac & cheese recipe that didn't call for Velveeta or bread crumbs, and this one is perfect. It was creamy and delicious. Instead of the bacon, I added grilled chicken and steamed broccoli. I will definitely be making this again.
Definitely the recipe I was looking for. Creamy and cheesy. I was using the one that adds cottage cheese, but this one tastes the way you expect mac and cheese to taste. The only thing I did differently was to use regular bacon. This is the recipe I'll go to when I'm craving mac and cheese.
The easiest and the best. I seriously thot i would ruin this meal, with it being my first cooked meal ever believe it or not, but it was so easy. It came out delicious. I added monterey jack cheese my fav.
Loved it! Left out bacon. Needs a bit of salt without bacon.
Excellent! The best macaroni and cheese recipe I have ever tried. Not to creamy, not to "chunky." Has flavor from the seasoning, not blah like other recipes. I doubled the recipe in a 9 x 13 pan as is, except I didn't add bacon (I didn't have any).
I have made this several times since finding this recipe! My husband loves it and he normally doesn't like mac and cheese. I don't use bacon though and I do top with breadcrumbs instead. Have used pre shredded Italian cheese blend and it's great that way too!
