This is a great base recipe. I made a few tweeks and it came out amazing!! I used 3/4 box of cavatappi pasta cooked for 5 minutes then placed into a greased glass baking pan. I sprinkled a handful of shredded cheddar cheese, 1/2 tsp paprika, and an ounce of cubed gruyere cheese over this. For the cheese mix I heated 2 cups milk, 1 egg, 3 tbl butter, 2 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, 4 oz cubed gruyere cheese, 2 oz extra sharp cheese cubed, and then all extra shredded cheese I had in my fridge (it ended up being about 1 1/2 cups of various mozzarella, pizza and Mexican blends). Once melted and bubbly that was poured over the pasta. Cooked that uncovered for 10 minutes then added 5 slices of almost cooked bacon and covered with a mixture of buttered and browned Italian bread crumbs, ritz crackers and Panko bread crumbs. Covered and cooked for 15 minutes. Then uncovered sprinkled with a bit of shredded cheddar cheese and baked for 5 more minutes. AMAZING.
