Creamy Bacon Buffalo Shells and Cheese



Mac and Cheese has always been my ultimate comfort food. Wait...scratch that. Not only is it my ultimate comfort food, it is one of my all time favorite foods! I love mac and cheese period. I also love how versatile the dish is and I am always looking for new ways to prepare it. Since I've been on a "Buffalo" kick as of late, it made sense to whip up a batch of my Bacon Buffalo Shells and Cheese. This stuff is crazy good!


Creamy Bacon Buffalo Shells and Cheese
Serves 6
WW PP=10
Cal 386, Carbs 47.3, Fat 12.3, Fiber 5g, Protein 17.6

Ingredients
12 oz medium shell pasta (I used Ronzoni)
1/2 cup buffalo wing sauce (I love Franks)
1/2 cup cooked and crumbled bacon
1.5 cups shredded four cheese american blend (I like kraft)
3 oz. reduced fat cream cheese
3/4 cup low fat milk
1/4 crumbled blue cheese

Cook pasta to al dente.

While pasta is cooking, in a large sauce pan over low-medium heat whisk together milk and cream cheese until smooth and bubbly. Slowly stir in the shredded cheese. Once melted add in the buffalo sauce. Toss in the cooked bacon and pour mixture over the shell pasta. Once fully combined top with crumbled blue cheese. Enjoy!
