Ingredients

**mini bell peppers (or small regular bells)
**mini pasta
**your favorite mac & cheese recipe

Directions Step-By-Step

1
NOTE: Make your favorite mac & cheese recipe. There are so many versions I did not feel the need to write one down. I like to play with my mac & cheese and try new things. Adding Pico de Gallo would be good. Today I used Pico Queso Cheese and added some Smokehouse Maple seasoning by McCormick. Adding cooked, crumbled bacon on top would be delicious as well.
2
Use mini pasta such as mini shells or elbow. Any type of small shaped pasta will work. If using regular size bell peppers you could use a larger pasta.
3
I found some mini bell peppers, but you could use regular sized ones, or small regular ones. You could cut it in half after cooking to make two servings. The ones I bought were single serving size. Slice off the top of the pepper and remove veins and seeds.
4
Once you have your mac & cheese ready to eat, gently stuff it inside your pepper. Place the top back on peppers and grill for 20-30 min. Time will depend on the heat of your grill. Use a wire rack or grilling pan.
