I make this same recipe, minus the onion,using cheddar soup and cheese. I found this new Campbell's poblano queso soup while at the super market and thought I would give it a try. There was actually a Mac and cheese recipe on the can which is where I got the idea for the onion.

A few basic ingredients:

As soon as you opened the can you could smell the poblano and it had nice big chunks of pepper:

For the cheese I used this authentic Mexican blend:

Cooked the bacon, sautéed the diced onion and mixed everything together. Cover with bread crumbs and into the smoker for two hours at 200 degrees.
The results were fantastic!

Recipe:

Box of pasta, I used mini penne
Two cans of soup
Bag of shredded cheese
About six strips of bacon
Diced onion that was sautéed
A cup of whole milk
Coated with bread crumbs and smoked for about two hours at 200 degrees and it was perfect!
Enjoy!

Here's a dumb-dumb question...did you precook the pasta at all or just dump it in right out of the package and it softened while in the smoker?

Sorry I should have said that, I cooked the pasta al dente. The bacon I cooked through but not crisp
