  • 1

    (8-oz) package macaroni, cooked al dente, according to package directions

  • Salt and ground black pepper, to taste

  • 3

    tsp butter

  • 1

    jar (15-16-oz) Alfredo sauce

  • cup Velveeta cheese

  • ¼

    cup mozzarella cheese, grated

  • 1

    cup + ¼ cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

  • 4-6

    strips smoked bacon, crumbled

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Pour the hot pasta into a large mixing bowl. Add the salt, pepper, and butter and stir until the butter melts. Add the Alfredo sauce, Velveeta, mozzarella, and 1 cup of the cheddar cheese; stir well. Pour the mixture into a large casserole dish and set a timer for 25 minutes. While the mac and cheese is baking, render the bacon until crisp in a skillet over medium-high heat, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. At the end of the 25 minutes, remove the mac and cheese from the oven and top with the crumbled bacon and 1/4 cup cheddar. Preheat the oven broiler and broil the dish for 10-20 seconds, or until the cheese melts. Serve hot.
