Mac 'n Cheese with Bacon, Broccoli and Grilled Chicken

Hello Everyone, 
It's been a while since I last posted so I thought that I would share what I cooked for dinner yesterday. I cooked homemade Mac 'n Cheese with Bacon, Broccoli and Grilled Chicken. And yes, it's Low Carb! :)
I've posted about Dreamfields pasta before and as always it's very important to follow the cooking directions and only boil it for 8 minutes and then immediately drain it and rinse it with cold water so that it stops cooking. I separate it into  portion sizes and keep the sauce separate from the pasta. I will reheat the sauce and meat but I won't reheat the pasta.
Now for the sauce! I just melted 1 stick of butter and melted 2 cups of shredded cheddar and then added 16 ounces of heavy whipping cream and stirred it while cooking until it came to a boil and then reduced the heat to simmer until it thickened and kept stirring. Then added the cooked chopped broccoli and some crumbled pieces of bacon.

I portioned the pasta into 6 servings and saved the other 5 servings for later. 
 This is 1 serving of pasta, 1 serving of broccoli and 4 ounces of grilled chicken. I should have added more bacon though.... LOL
I hope everyone is doing well!

  1. Sadly Dreamfields pasta is not actually low carb at all:
