Prep Time: Approximately 20 minutes

Bangin’ Mac and Cheese


16 oz Medium Pasta Shells

5 Tablespoons of Unsalted Butter

½ cup of Panko Bread Crumbs

1 cup of Whole Milk

½ teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper

8 oz of shredded extra sharp Cheddar cheese

8 oz of shredded Monterey Jack Cheese

8 oz of shredded Colby Jack Cheese





  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Grease a 9 x 13 pan. (PAM Brand spray works best.)
  • Season water to boil with salt and begin boiling the pasta.
  • While pasta is cooking, use a small skillet to fry bacon, let it cool, and cut into small pieces.
  •  In a large skillet, use two tablespoons of butter to brown breadcrumbs. Set aside once browned.
  • In the same skillet, melt the remaining butter then pour in the milk and add Cayenne pepper.
  • Add all cheeses and melt. This mixture will be somewhat runny.
  • Once cheeses are melted, fold in the bacon and pasta. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Remove from the heat source.
  • Pour the pasta, bacon, and cheese mixture into a 9 x 13-inch pan and sprinkle breadcrumbs on top.
  • Bake covered in foil for twenty minutes.
