Hungry Girl BLT Mac n' Cheese (Kind of)!

I know, again with the healthy recipes, but I really am trying to make an effort here! I really tweaked this recipe to what we had on hand so that I didn't have to run to the grocery, it is almost a Hungry Girl recipe (see the original here, but with some regular ingredients.

Finished dish looks like this...nice and creamy!

BLT Mac n Cheese (my version)

1 1/2 C. Macaroni

1 cups julienned baby spinach leaves

6-7 Cherry Tomatoes, quartered

4 wedges Crystal Farms Light Swiss Cheese

2 slices Weight Watchers Cheddar Cheese

2 tbsp. light sour cream

4 slices precooked real crumbled bacon
Optional: salt and black pepper, to taste

Directions:In a large pot on the stove, prepare pasta according to package instructions. Drain well, return to the pot, and cover to keep warm. Set aside. Place cheese wedges in a microwave safe bowl and break cheese slices into pieces, add sour cream. Stir cheeses and sour cream together. Microwave for 30 seconds, and then stir thoroughly. Microwave for another 30 seconds, or until cheeses have fully melted. Mix until smooth. Add cheese mixture, bacon, and veggies to the pasta. Toss to coat. If needed, bring to desired temperature on the stove. If you like, season to taste with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
