Sister See Sister Do - Tasty Tuesday

Bacon Mac & Cheese

Have you seen one of Kraft's newest products? My grocery stocks it next to their shredded cheese. It's called, Fresh Take Cheese & Breadcrumb mix. Great idea - everything you need (minus chicken) all in one neat little package!

I had a coupon and it was on sale so for .49 I thought I'd give this new product a try.  Instead of using it to coat my chicken I thought I'd try it out with some pasta.  My family loves homemade mac & cheese (which can be time consuming and costly..)  So I'm always trying new recipes to find one we really like.  This one ended up being very creamy and got RAVE reviews!

Cheddar Jack Bacon Mac & Cheese

16oz box Picolini pasta
Fresh Take Cheddar-Jack & Bacon
1 Jar Ragu Classic Alfredo Sauce

-Cook Pasta according to directions on box until al dente.  Drain pasta and set aside.
-In same sauce pan add entire jar of Alfredo sauce, stir in cheese from the Fresh Take package (save breadcrumbs for later).  Stir until creamy and all cheese is melted.
-Add in cooked pasta and stir until combined.
-Pour pasta mixture into greased 9x13 pan
-Sprinkle breadcrumb mixture from Fresh Take over the pasta
-Bake 350 for 20-25 minutes until cheese bubbles

I can't wait to try the other Fresh Take's flavors in my Mac & Cheese Experiments!
