Carbonara Mac and Cheese

Carbonara Mac n Cheese

I have different categories of recipes just chilling in my brain. There’s the OMG-I-need-a-cookie-with-salt category. There’s the I-need-breakfast-for-(super late)-lunch-at-4pm. BUT, my most utilized category is the 15-minute-meal-that-can-be-made-sans-store-trip-becuz-OMG-am-I-lazy.

I’m thinking of making this a real, legitimate recipe category on this here blog. If it did really exist, carbonara would be my personal favorite. It can be made in 15 minutes, there aren’t a ton of ingredients and I usually have all of them on hand.

Is it the most healthy? Nah. No. UGH. But, most delicious? Yes. Duh. UGH. On a freezing cold night, carbonara is like a hug in a bowl. Turning the dish into a mac and cheese makes this thing like a gigantic bear hug (that might get awkward) in a bowl.

If this sounds at all appealing, head over to Wisconsin Cheese’s site for the full recipe!

When it is cold and gloomy outside my brain immediately goes to…… CHEESE! This is going to be my next rainy day meal. Can’t go wrong with bacon and cheese when feeling blah.
