Easy Weeknight Bacon Mac 'n Cheese

READY IN: 40mins
Top Review by flower7

Not sure why there's water listed in the ingredients since it's not mentioned in the directions. I got this recipe off the can for the cooking sauce and there's no water mentioned.

That said, this is DELICIOUS mac & cheese! I used extra sharp cheddar and Velveeta. Didn't add bell pepper but added breadcrumbs before baking the mac so it would get browned. Will be making this again!
