    Lorraine of AZ's Note:

    This recipe is not found on the Food Network where Anne demonstrates her cooking skills, but in her new cookbook "Cook Like a Rock Star." I really like Anne's show(s). She is funny but she really gets her points across. This recipe sounds great to me, so I am putting it here for safe-keeping.

    1. 1
      Drizzle a bit of olive oil in a large saucepan. Add bacon and bring to medium heat. Stir bacon occasionally. When crisp and brown (6-8 minutes) remove bacon from pan. Drain. Do not discard bacon fat!
    2. 2
      Add butter and onion to pan with the fat. Season with salt and cook till onions are soft and aromatic (8-10 minutes). Add flour and cook stirring 4-5 minutes. Slowly whisk in the milk, season with salt. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer on low heat 8-10 minutes more.
    3. 3
      In the meantime, bring a pot of well-salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook 1 minute less than the package directions stipulate. Drain and reserve.
    4. 4
      Add the three cheeses to the milk mixture and whisk to combine. Add mustard and Tabasco; taste and adjust seasonings. If mixture is too thick, add more milk. Stir in bacon and pasta. Mixture should be very creamy and flavorful. Serve immediately or transfer to a baking dish or ramekins and reheat in a 375 degree oven.

      Disappointing! I will not make this again. In fact, right after I was finished cooking this dish, my husband and I threw it out! Not worth the expense of Fontina, good cheddar and Parmesan! :(
