Mac and Cheese Cook-Off - Home & Family

Orly Shani, Debbie Matenopoulos and Matt Iseman battle it out to see who has the best mac and cheese recipe

Directions

1) Cook the pasta in salted boiling water until a little less than al dente. Drain, rinse with cold water, and drain the pasta again.

2) Cook the bacon in a frying pan over high until crispy, about 8 mins. Remove extra grease by patting the strips with a paper towel, and then cut into bite- size pieces.

3) Add the sauce and both cheeses to a large, heavy-bottomed pot and cook over medium heat. Stir until the cheese is barely melted, about 3 mins. Add the bacon, stir, and combine. Slowly add the cooked pasta, stir, and continue cooking while stirring continuously until the dish is nice and hot, another 5 mins.

4) Spoon into bowls and serve hot
