Mac N' Cheese with a Twist!




Have you ever made homemade Mac N' Cheese? 
If yes, then you'll love this. If not, then you'll love this too. 


I added in bacon for extra flavor and peas and carrots to make us think it was a tad bit better for us. hahaha.

It looked fantastic and was delicious. It makes a good amount so we had plenty for leftovers a few nights.

Give it a try and let me know what you think!


Ingredients: 
1 lb macaroni pasta
1 and 1/2 cup milk
2-3 cups of cheese (you're choice, sharp cheddar is preferred)  
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground mustard
1/2 lb bacon
2 chicken breasts
1 and 1/2 cup peas and carrots
2 tbs flour

Directions:
Start by cooking bacon in a large pan. Set aside to cool then crumble. (Don't wash the bacon pan yet) :)
Meanwhile, cook the pasta  according to the directions on the box. Place cooked pasta in a large bowl, Cover to keep warm.
In the pan you cooked the bacon, cook chicken then shred. (bacon flavored chicken, yum!)

In a large pot, heat 1 cup milk and add flour stir until no clumps remain.  Then, add in other 1/2 cup milk. Stir until thick. Add in salt, mustard, then cheese until fully melted and creamy
Once the cheese sauce is ready, add cheese mixture to  the bowl of pasta and fold in chicken, bacon and peas and carrots.

 Serve immediately. 
 Enjoy!
