Bacon Mac 'n Cheese

Good thing it's the holidays: I needed a nap after this delicious lunch.

Cook 3 cups dry macaroni according to package directions.  (Al dente.)

Melt 1/3 cup butter in sauce pan.  Whisk in 1/3 cup flour.

Add 2 cups of milk and seasonings (I used basil and black pepper) to the flour and butter mix.  Whisk continuously.  Once that has thickened, fold in 2-3 cups of grated cheddar and stir til smooth.

Pour sauce over drained noodles and mix.  Scoop into casserole dish.

Top with crumbled bacon, 1/2 cup grated cheese and breadcrumbs (or crunched up rice cereal, as I did here when I realized we didn't have breadcrumbs in the pantry).

Place in oven 5 350 until cheese is melted and bubbly (8-ish min).
