Serves: 6
  • 2 boxes of Annie's Shells and White Cheddar
  • 3-4 tablespoons butter
  • 6 tablespoons milk
  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled and cubed
  • 1 large tomato or 2 small/medium tomatoes, diced
  • 6 sliced of bacon, crispy-cooked and crumbled
  • 3-4 cups fresh spinach, wilted
  • ⅓ to ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  1. Prepare 2 boxes of Annie's Shells and White Cheddar according to package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, cook bacon in a large skillet until crispy. Remove bacon and let cool on a paper towel. Drain most of the bacon grease from the pan.
  3. While skillet is still hot, and with some bacon grease remaining, add fresh spinach and cook, stirring, until spinach has wilted. This will only take a minute or 2.
  4. Chop tomatoes and avocado, and crumble bacon. Set aside.
  5. When the pasta is done cooking, drain water and follow box instructions for mixing butter, milk, and cheese packet. Stir thoroughly. Add pasta to a large oven-safe dish.
  6. Stir in tomatoes, avocados, crumbled bacon, and spinach. Sprinkle with extra cheese and heat in a warm oven (about 350°) for 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
  7. This pasta dish can be served hot or cold.
