Description

Cook Something, Drink Something, Do Something

Ingredients

  • 1 16. oz. box pasta (I like to use cavatappi or penne pasta)
  • 2 Tbls. butter
  • 2 C. milk
  • 8 oz. bag shredded sharp cheddar cheese (+ more grated cheese if you want to use some on top of the casserole for a cheesy crust)
  • 4 oz. Velveeta cheese, cut up into chunks
  • 1 lb. bacon, diced
  • 5 jalapeños, veins and seeds removed, sliced

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350º
  • Cook pasta according to package directions, except cook about 2 minutes less. You want the pasta al dente so it will soak up some sauce. Drain when cooked and set aside.
  • Cook bacon in large saucepan. Remove from grease and let drain on paper towels.
  • Drain grease from pan (leave about a tablespoon in the pan) and then add jalapeños and sauté a couple of minutes to soften them. CAUTION: turn on your fan! And be careful, the spice will make you cough! Remove jalapeño from pan and set aside with the bacon.
  • In medium saucepan, melt butter, then add milk and heat.
  • Add cheeses and continue to heat over medium heat, stirring, until cheese is melted and combined.
  • In large casserole dish, combine pasta, cheese sauce, bacon and jalapeños.
  • Top with additional grated cheddar cheese, if desired. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until hot and bubbly. Let sit about 5 minutes before serving.
