    Creamy Bacon Mac and Cheese

    Just made this tonight for dinner, it was a success! My eight year old loved it, had two servings! I doubled the recipe and baked in two loaf pans. I used a little extra cheese and extra bread crumbs, just personal preference. Next time I will definitely add some real bacon. I think this is a perfect recipe when you're running short on time, simple and quick!

    Really good recipe. Made it a couple of times, changed the soup to cheddar and it was still really good. Instead of bread crumbs on the top, I added bacon strips.

    I've made this several times, it's a hit here! One request tho Campbell's, could you find a better way to say how much pasta is required? Seriously. The measurements you use are useless.

    Could Use Some Tinkering

    When making this double the sauce recipe (or half the amount of macaroni) and add more than just a single cup of cheese. Pasta absorbs liquid very easily, and the whole thing ended up a little dry and a little bland. I would also recommend adding spices, smoked paprika is a favorite of mine for this kid of dish.
