4-Cheese Mac 'n' Bacon

60 mins (prep 30, cooking 30)

This is based on a popular dish at T's restaurant in Chicago. But I modified what I tasted and added a touch of bacon to really give it some heartiness. Whoever you serve this to will immediately declare it the best mac 'n' cheese they've ever had. Unite against boxed mac 'n' cheese!
