Stovetop Smoked Gouda and Cheddar Fusilli

 

Prep Time: 25 Minutes

 

Total Time: 45 Minutes

 

Servings: 6

 

 

 

Ingredients

 

1 lb. fusilli pasta

 

8 oz. bacon, chopped

 

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

 

2 cups milk

 

8 oz. cheddar cheese, grated

 

8 oz. smoked gouda cheese, grated

 

Salt and pepper

 

Fresh scallion, garnish

Directions:

Cook pasta according to directions. When pasta is done, drain and rinse with cold water to stop cooking.

 

Wipe out pot and add chopped bacon to pot over low heat. Let bacon render out until the pieces are very crispy. Remove crispy bacon from pot with a slotted spoon. Add flour and whisk into bacon grease. Let cook on low for a few minutes to form a roux (should be a light tan color).

 

Add milk slowly to the roux, whisking constantly, to form a sauce. Once all milk is added to the pot, let thicken and add cheeses. Stir together to melt cheeses well. It should form a thick cheese sauce.

 

Stir in cooked pasta and most of the reserved crispy bacon. Season with salt and pepper.

 

Serve cheesy fusilli pasta garnished with a little crispy bacon and fresh scallion.
