the BEST (and easiest) homemade Mac & Cheese (with Bacon!)


Homemade Mac & Cheese (or Bacon Mac & Cheese)
1 pint heavy cream/whipping cream (can also use 1/2 pint, just won't be as creamy)
1/2 teaspoon rosemary (fresh is best, dry will work)
Salt & pepper to taste
Bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled (optional, but seriously YUMMY)
Veggies, steamed (optional, I like asparagus or broccoli)
2 cups grated cheese, I used cheddar
16oz box elbow noodles, cooked

How to Make It

Boil water and cook elbow noodles according to package directions.
In large saucepan over medium heat, stir heavy cream and rosemary. Bring to a boil and continue stirring until reduced and thickened (should be the consistency of a thin gravy). Stir in crumbled bacon, cheese and any steamed veggies, just until cheese is melted. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Drain elbow noodles and put in large bowl. Pour cheese mixture over top of noodles and stir until well blended.
