The best thing about deciding that comfort food is going to be the star of your dinner table is that anything goes My usual choice for comfort food is PASTA. Pasta is a once-in-a-while treat for us. For the most part we avoid eating it a lot at home, saving the carb-loving splurge for dinners out instead. I almost never order mac and cheese at a restaurant for fear of coming home a couple pounds heavier, but for some reason it feels okay to make it at home.
Last weekend called for comfort food. It was snowing lightly, and we were feeling like a good macaroni and cheese, comfort-food type dinner might warm us up just right. This version of mac and cheese sports a simple cheddar cheese sauce (though you can use any cheese you’d like), and a generous amount of broccoli florets and crispy bacon. It’s creamy and perfect. It’s pure comfort food indeed!
