Step 1

Over medium-high heat, fry the bacon until the fat renders and the bacon becomes crispy (transforming into bacon bits), about 8-10 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon, set aside and let drain on a paper towel.

Step 2

Using the bacon fat still in the pan, brown the ground beef. When meat is no longer pink, drain and then add salt, pepper, garlic powder & Worcestershire sauce. Cook for 2-3 more minutes, or until beef is cooked to your liking. I like making it kind of crispy, so I cook longer. Set aside and keep warm.

Step 3

In a large saucepan, cook your pasta according to package directions. Al dente is best as you don't want the mac & cheese mushy. Once pasta is done, drain but do not rinse.

Step 4

Return the warm pasta to the saucepan, and immediately add the butter, yogurt, and cheese. Stir until everything is well-melted, then fold in the reserved ground beef.
