How to Make Italian Mac n Cheese

Step-by-Step

  1. * Pre heat oven to 350
    * Boil Pasta until al dente. While pasta water is heating to a boil, cook bacon (the bacon should be crispy and easy to crumble into little bits, this can be done ahead of time as well). Break the yellow American and sharp cheddar cheeses into small pieces easy for melting. When pasta is done boiling strain and put into a large baking dish. When Bacon is done and chopped into bits add to pasta in dish.
  2. * In the same large pot that the pasta was boiled in melt the 3 TBSP. of butter over medium heat, and slowly add flour, 1 TBSP. at a time, stirring with a whisk. After the smell of flour is gone and butter and flour are mixed thoroughly together add the heavy cream and whisk together at the same time. Add cheeses slowly, while stirring ( with a wooden spoon) add milk and cheeses in increments. Ensuring a smooth cheese sauce consistency. After all cheese is added and milk is added last and stirred thoroughly add to baking dish with the pasta and bacon in it already and stir all ingredients together so that the cheese is coving every noodle. Heat up remaining butter in a microwave safe small bowl to melt. Add bread crumbs and stir together. Add on top of mac and cheese. Bake for 20 minutes. Let cool, and enjoy!!
