Ingredients


  • 1 lb cavatappi pasta
  • 6 slices bacon cooked and diced
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 lb sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 cup colby-jack cheese shredded
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 6 slices Kraft American cheese


Instructions

Cook bacon as desired. (I like to arrange on a rimmed baking sheet lined with foil and bake at 425 for 15 minutes.)

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 3qt baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

Cook cavatappi pasta as directed on the package. (Make sure to lightly salt the water.)

In a medium saucepan, melt butter and flour together over medium heat.

Slowly whisk in the milk, pouring in a thin stream and stirring constantly.

Stir in onion powder, salt, and pepper.

Allow milk mixture to come to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer two minutes.

In a large bowl, toss together cheddar, colby-jack, and mozzarella.

Whisk in sliced cheese and 1 1/4 cups of cheddar mixture. Remove from heat.

Toss the bacon pieces in with remaining cheddar mixture.

Combine pasta and cheese sauce, toss to coat.

Pour half into prepared dish and sprinkle with a generous cup of the bacon-cheese mixture. Repeat layering.

Bake for 20 minutes, until cheese is bubbly.
