Mac 'N Cheese Please

So I don't know about you, but one of my favorite things to make EVER is mac 'n cheese. It's the perfect hodgepodge. I mean, how can you possibly go wrong with any combination of cheese and pasta?!? This one here is my basic quick and dirty combo. I'm sure you'll get different variations of this ooey gooey goodness in later postings as well.

To Start:
1 lb of pasta
1 small shallot
1-2 sliced scallions
crumbled bacon
1 16 oz bag of shredded cheese, we used cheddar and parmesan
2 small cans of Campbell's cheddar soup mix
Salt and Black Pepper
bread crumbs

Prepare the pasta; boil and salt the water, wait for the rapid boil add the pasta, tap your fingers for the amount of time allotted on the pasta instructions stirring occasionally, drain the pasta through a colander leaving a small amount of the liquid in the bottom of your pot.

While the pasta is boiling, use a small frying pan to caramelize your shallots.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Mix in the two cans of Campbell's cheddar soup, the shredded cheese, the scallions, 3/4 of the bacon and the caramelized shallots together and then pour into a baking dish.

Sprinkle on the rest of the bacon, some bread crumbs and I like to add a little more of the shredded cheese on the top.

Bake in the oven for about 20- 25 minutes.

Eat & Enjoy!!!
