Preparation of bacon and butter
1. In a very oven-safe pot over medium high heat, add 1/2 tbsp. butter and the chopped bacon.
2. Cook until browned and crispy, about 5-6 minutes.
3. Remove the bacon to a bowl and remove any bacon grease.
4. Add the remaining butter to the pot.
Preparation of sauce
1. Once melted, add the minced garlic, flour, and seasoning.
2. Whisk until all the flour has absorbed the butter and cook 1 more minute on medium heat.
3. Gradually whisk in the whole milk and heavy cream.
4. Bring to a gentle boil, then simmer 5 minutes to reduce.
5. Whisk in the cream cheese. It is okay to have small lumps and not be smooth.
6. Set aside 1 cup shredded mozzarella.
7. Whisk in the remaining shredded cheeses 1 cup at a time until the sauce is thick, smooth, and creamy.
Folding in pasta and bacon
1. Fold in the cooked pasta and crispy bacon bits.
2. Top with the set aside shredded mozzarella and broil in the oven on HIGH for 1-3 minutes, until slightly golden.
Final step
1. Enjoy warm with freshly chopped herbs, such as basil or micro greens.
