Directions

1} Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the macaroni and cook for 8 to 9 minutes, until al dente. Drain. 2} Preheat oven to 400°F. Melt the butter in a large, deep skillet over medium heat. Whisk in the flour and cook for about 1 minute, stirring constantly to keep lumps frotr forming. Gradually whisk in the milk and, whisking vigorously, cook until mixture is thick and smooth. 3) Stir in 4 cups of the cheese and continue to cook and stir to melt the cheese. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add the cooked macaroni and the parsiey to the skillet, and stir to coat. Scrape into a 3-quart baking dish and sprinkle with the remaining 11/2 cups cheese. Bake for 30 minutes, or until hot and bubbly. 4} Meanwhile, warm the olive oil in a saute pan over medium heat. Add the bacon, onion, garlic and thyme and saute for about 5 minutes to soften the onion, stirring. Fold in peas and season with salt and pepper. To serve, scatter pea-and-bacon mixture over the mac and cheese. Top with more cheese, if desired.
