Creamy and cheesy using only 4 ingredients



  • 1 portion of cooked pasta (i use fusilli)
  • 1 heaped tbsp cream cheese
  • dash of milk
  • bacon bits


1. Cook your pasta as usual and drain, add back to pan

2. Fry bacon bits until cooked

3. Add bacon, cheese and milk to pasta

4. Stir over a low heat for a couple of mins until an easy cheese sauce is created

5. Chuck in a bowl and enjoy

other ideas:

-add mushrooms when frying the bacon cause veg is good for you and stuff

-try fresh pasta

-cream cheese with added herbs for extra flavour

    Instead of using cream cheese , I found it tasted a lot better using my own knob cheese !
