Three Cheese and Macaroni with Bacon

This was a different spin on Mac and Cheese. It was very creamy and my family liked it. We thought 1 tsp salt was a bit too much. We also did not use cream but used all milk. This will be on the menu again!

Three Cheese and Macaroni with Bacon
16-17.5 oz. Cooked Macaroni Pasta
1/2 C. Butter

3 TBSP. Flour
1 3/4 C. Milk
1/4 C. Heavy Cream
4 oz. Cream Cheese-softened
1 tsp. Salt  (too much)
1/2 tsp. Pepper
1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp. Onion Powder
2 C. Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1 C. Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
2.5 oz. pkg. of Real Bacon Pieces

Start by boiling the water and cooking the pasta.
While that is cooking you can start on the cheeses sauce.
In a sauce pan mix butter, flour cooking for 1 minute.
Add in the milk, cream and seasoning. Whisk until smooth.
Add in the cream cheese and stir until melted.
The mixture will start to thicken.
Stir in the remaining shredded cheese,
continue to stir until melted and blended.
Drain pasta transfer to a large bowl and pour cheese sauce
over pasta. Finally sprinkle bacon pieces in and mix.
