My Penne fascination

Because of watching a lot of Food Network and Lifestyle Channel, Hubby and me are finding ourselves experimenting a lot in the kitchen lately.

Tonight’s inspiration: Cooking Light’s Bacon Mac

I used Penne Pasta, skipped the hot sauce, replaced green onion with one whole white onion, cut down the Cheddar cheese to 3/4 cup and added 1/2 cup of Monterey jack cheese and 3/4 cup of Romano cheese. Also, to make the sauce more flavorful, I used the same pan where I cooked the bacon for the milk and flour over medium heat step. It’s the first time I used the turbo broiler and I didn’t have any baking pans so I used spare lyaneras. Don’t forget to take it out of the broiler after the set time or do it a few minutes shorter and leave it in, the cheese on top ended up a bit too burnt with the second batch.
