Ahh Monday…we meet again! Does anyone else feel extra lazy on Mondays? I know I do!
Remember when I proclaimed myself to be a foodie-aholic, but then confessed to eating nothing but pizza for half a week? You can read my confession here. Well, I had a list of yums that inspired me to throw away the boxes of pizza (it was tough!) and sentenced myself to the kitchen. I previously made crispy chicken skewers from that list and it was deeeelicious! This time around, I had to make the mac and cheese…quattro formaggio, spinach, and bacon mac and cheese to be exact! This isn’t just your ordinary kiddie mac and cheese (although I’m sure the kids would love it too!), this is macaroni and cheese for us fancy adults! What makes this fancy you ask? Well honestly…I don’t really know, but maybe it’s the spinach and four types of cheeses that makes it fancy? :/
This version of mac and cheese is incredibly simple and easy to make. This whole meal can be done in less than an hour! And did I mention the fact that there are bacon bits in it? That right there is a selling point for you to try!
For a girl that loves bacon, how could you expect her to jump on the Meatless Monday bandwagon? Hope you all enjoy my rendition of Meatless (No Way) Monday! :)
Let’s get started!
Before you start making the sauce to your mac and cheese, get the noodles out of the way!
Kitchen tip: drizzle a little olive oil into the boiling water, it prevents the noodles from clinging onto each other while they’re cooking.
Once the pasta is done cooking…
Now make the bacon bits!
