Creamy Mac ‘N’ Cheese With Bacon

I prefer my mac ‘n’ cheese creamy and homemade. I wouldn’t say no to the one made from a box though once in a while because my children likes it and it is very convenient too. But when I feel like indulging and/or during the holiday season, I’d definitely go for homemade and a different kind of pasta shape. But of course, elbow macaroni is always good.

Creamy Mac 'N' Cheese With Bacon


  • 1 box rotini pasta, cooked al dente
  • water for boiling
  • 6 slices bacon, chopped coarsely
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese
  • sprinkle of salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and Italian Seasonings(or dried oregano, dried basil)


  • Boil water to cook the pasta, al dente. While that’s boiling, brown the bacon. Place in a paper towel lined plate to set aside. In a medium pot, melt the butter. Add the milk and the cheeses.
  • Whisk gently until everything is incorporated. Season with salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning.
  • Preheat the oven to 355°. Drain the water off of the pasta. Pour the cheese sauce into the pasta then add the bacon. Stir everything together.

Transfer into a serving bowl or dish pan.

A very creamy and cheesy side to almost any main entrée. Enjoy.
