This is a delicious variation on baked macaroni and cheese .
While it may be slightly more difficult than other recipes , it tastes even better .
First , preheat the oven to 350 degrees .
Bring a large pot of water to a boil and lightly salt .
It add in eight ounces of penne pasta and cook the pasta until it's al dente .
Now let's get the chopped ingredients prepped and ready .
First chop one onion and mince one clove of garlic .
Set these ingredients aside , place two slices of bacon in a large deep skillet and cook it over medium high heat until the bacon is evenly browned .
Train the bacon on paper towels in the same skillet that you've cooked .
The bacon .
Saute the onion and garlic until they're soft .
About three minutes turn off the heat crumble the bacon and add the bacon to the onions and garlic and set it aside .
Now drain the pasta thoroughly and set that aside .
Next , we'll prepare the sauce by placing two tablespoons of butter or margarine into a medium sauce pan and melting it over low heat .
Add three tablespoons of all purpose flour and cook it stirring constantly for two minutes , slowly whisk in two cups of milk and continue cooking and stirring until the mixture thickens about four or five minutes .
Once the mixture has thickened , stir in two cups of grated cheddar cheese cook and stir the sauce until the cheese is completely melted in a large mixing bowl .
Add the cooked pasta , the sauteed vegetables and bacon mixture and the cheese sauce stir to combine together , pour this mixture into a two quart baking dish and Sprinkle one cup of grated cheddar cheese evenly over the top bake uncovered in your preheated oven until the cheese on top is melted and browned .
