This is a Pampered Chef recipe out of their 29 minutes to dinner cookbook. It is AMAZING and totally worth the amount of money you have to spend on the sharp white cheddar cheese. I have healthified it.
1 lb Uncooked cellentani or cavatappi pasta. ->Whole Grain
Boil for about 8 minutes then add:
4 oz Sharp white cheddar cheese <- I bought 1/3 lb thinly sliced from the deli and cut it up.
1 oz Parmesan cheese
4 oz Cream cheese (1/2 a block) or YoChee
1 Large leek white and light green portions only (Soak in water before slicing)
Stir until cheeses are melted and then add:
8 slices Bacon or 1 1/2 cups bits (I used a bag of precooked portioned frozen bacon bits)
1 tsp Salt + 1/2 tsp Coarsely ground black pepper
Once everything is mixed nicely and the sauce is completely thickened, add:
3 Large plum tomatoes (I used Roma- deseeded and cut into large chunks)
