Homemade Mac & Cheese with Bacon and Spinach

Homemade Mac & Cheese with Bacon and Spinach


·         6 – 7 oz. box of pasta (I used whole wheat.)
·         1/2 cup frozen spinach, chopped
·         2 – 3 slices bacon (Try cooking bacon in the oven.)
·         2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
·         3/4 cup milk
·         4 ounces cream cheese, cut into small chunks
·         2 cups Italian blend shredded cheese (mine was mozzarella, parmesan, provolone, and asiago)


·         In a large pot, bring 3 – 4 quarts of water to a full rolling boil. Cook the pasta according to box directions. (My pasta took 6 minutes to be perfectly firm and fully cooked.) When the pasta is 2 minutes from being al dente, add the spinach to the pot with the pasta, then drain the pasta/spinach and return to the pot.
·         While the pasta water is boiling and the pasta is cooking, fry the bacon in a large skillet over medium high heat.
·         When the bacon is fully cooked, remove from the pan and place on a paper towel to drain and then chop when cooled.
