I may still be working on perfecting my mac and cheese recipe to replace my favorite boxed mac and cheese but I sure am stumbling onto some tasty variations during my journey. This Shells and Cheese with Bacon dish would be one of those variations; one that my husband has been scarfing by the bowl full.
Like I said in my last post, Mac and Cheese is one of those side dishes that I can totally dig into no matter how warm it is outside. Most of the time in the summer (and freaking hot spring) weather, I'm looking for cold or cool dishes (hello, can I just please live off of frozen yogurt in the summer?!?) but mac and cheese is one thing that I'll let slide. If it's a good mac and cheese, I'm willing to eat it no matter how hot it is outside.
