Buffalo Bacon Shells and Cheese

If you follow my blog then it comes as no surprise when I post "Buffalo" style recipes. Both my husband and I love Buffalo sauce and I really enjoy cooking with it. This pasta combines two of my favorites (well, actually three) Bacon, Mac and Cheese, and Buffalo Sauce. It's so good and what I love even more is that it is weight watchers friendly! I can enjoy this tasty pasta without any guilt. Now that is my kind of meal!

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

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!
