This creative recipe takes the ingredients found in a BLT and turns them into a tasty mac & cheese dish.


  • ½ pound pasta
  • 4 slices thick-cut bacon, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ medium onion, finely diced
  • 1 medium onion, coarsely chopped

  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 6 ounces Roth® Ultimate Mac & Cheese shred blends
  • 30 spinach leaves, chopped coarsely
  • 1 large tomato, ½” dice
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Cook pasta al dente, approx. 6 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  2. Heat a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat; cook bacon until just slightly crispy, then add garlic and onion and sauté until softened, approx. 3 minutes.
  3. Combine half and half and cornstarch in a separate bowl. Reduce heat to medium, add half and half mixture to pan and bring to light simmer; stir until sauce slightly thickens.
  4. Slowly stir in Roth® Ultimate Mac & Cheese shred blends until fully melted. Add warm pasta and heat thoroughly.
  5. Before serving, add fresh spinach and tomato and warm for one minute.
