Skillet Shells and Cheese with Bacon

Once in a while I just need to splurge on a cheesy pasta dish. And this is one of my favorites! Actually my whole family loves this dish. It's definitely not diet friendly but it's oh so good!

Skillet Shells and Cheese with Bacon
Serves 6

16 oz. medium shell pasta
2 cups shredded american cheese blend, divided
1.5 cups low fat milk
2 tbsp. butter
1 tbsp. flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/2 cup ritz crackers, crushed

Cook pasta to al dente, drain and set aside.

While pasta is cooking, in a large skillet melt the butter. Once melted whisk in flour, salt, and pepper. Stir for about 3 minutes. Slowly, stir in the milk and once thickened add in half of the shredded cheese. Stir until melted.

Add in the cooked pasta and top with remaining shredded cheese, crushed crackers, and bacon.

Place under broiler for about 3-4 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Enjoy!
