Bacon Mac & Cheese

Happy Holidaze! 
I thought perhaps you foodies might enjoy Bacon Mac & Cheese. A little midnight snack for my husband and I, but you might need this dish for a special occasion.


2 cups of shell pasta 
1/2 cup of organic whipped cream 
1/3 cup organic cream
5 slices of Applegate organic bacon 
1 cup of 3 cheese mix - Asiago, Romano, Parmesan 
2 stalks of green onion
1 teaspoon of nutmeg
1 teaspoon of ground pepper
1 teaspoon ground onion
1 teaspoon of ground garlic


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 
First, cook pasta and drain. 
Second, in a medium size bowl, mix the creams and the cheese, and add seasoning till fully mixed together. Put the bowl to the side till needed. 
Third, cook bacon in your iron skillet. 
Fourth, place bacon strips to drain on a paper towel and pour out excess fat out. 
Cut cooked bacon into small bite size pieces. 
Fifth, in same skillet, place the cooked pasta shells and pour the cream mix on top, no need to stir the pasta. 
Sixth, sprinkle bacon pieces, and a pinch more of the parmesan on top. 
Seventh, place iron skillet in middle rack of oven and bake for 20 minutes.
Finally, sprinkle the finely chopped green onion.

Serve hot! 
Serves 4 very hungry individuals. 
Being a meal in itself, you will not disappoint!
