Bacon Macaroni & Cheese

I love mac n cheese. I love homemade mac n cheese more than any other kind of macaroni and cheese.
I found this recipe via Pinterest, to make it even more delicious I added bacon to it.

1 lb medium shell noodles
1/2 stick butter
1/4C flour
2.5C skim milk
2C shredded cheese -- I used a mixture from Giant super market called "Mac & Cheese Blend" -- it is a mixture of sharp cheddar, american, and swiss cheese.
1/4C cream
salt & pepper to taste
6 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled

  1. Cook pasta according to directions, drain and set aside.
  2. In large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat.
  3. Stir in flour to make a roux.
  4. Stir in a pinch of salt and pepper.
  5. Let roux cook for 1 minute, then add milk.
  6. Whisk until slightly thickened.
  7. Remove saucepan from heat.
  8. Add cheese and cream, stirring until cheese melts.
  9. Adjust salt and pepper to your taste.
  10. Stir in crumbled bacon.
  11. Combine noodles and cheese sauce.
  12. Enjoy!
