Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook bacon and set aside. Cook pasta until al dente and drain. In a medium skillet, saute the chopped onion and minced garlic. Take off heat and add chopped cooked bacon and set aside. To make sauce, in a medium saucepan melt the butter or margarine over low heat. Once melted, add the flour and stir constantly for 2 min. Gradually add milk and continue stirring until thickened. Stir in 2 cups of the grated cheddar and stir until melted. Combine cooked pasta, sauteed vegetables and sauce. Pour into a 2 quart casserole dish. Add the last cup of grated cheddar cheese on top of mixture. Bake uncovered until cheese on top is melted and brown (15-20 min). Serve warm.
