“Fancy Pants” Bacon Mac ‘n Cheese 
Makes 4 side portions

4 strips bacon, diced into ½ inch pieces
1 clove garlic, chopped
6 oz heavy cream
4 oz chicken broth
6 oz shredded cheddar cheese
2 oz shredded parmesan cheese
½ teaspoon black pepper
8 oz (uncooked weight) noodle of your choice
½ cup seasoned, dried breadcrumbs

Set oven to 350. Cook pasta to al dente, drain and set aside, while that is cooking, cook the bacon until almost crisp in a medium oven-proof skillet.  Add the garlic and allow to soften in the bacon fat.  Add the cream, bring to a boil, add the cheeses and drained pasta, top with the seasoned bread crumbs and put into the oven until lightly browned and bubbling.  Careful, it will be HOT!
