SERVES: 6-10




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Make a little open topped pouch of aluminum foil and place the shallots and garlic in there with a pinch of salt and a bit of olive oil.
  • Roast this for 30-45 min or until tender and just starting to brown.
  • While that is roasting, place the Thyme in a 2 quart saucepan and pour the Heavy Cream on top of it. Place over Medium heat. **Make sure this does not boil, we only want to get it nice and hot.
  • Once the garlic and shallots are done, chop them up and set aside.
  • Reheat the bacon fat in a large saute pan and add the garlic and shallots.
  • Saute for 1 Minute.
  • Add Flour and stir for 1 minute.
  • Grab the Thyme with a pair of tongs and throw it away. Then, pour the hot cream into your large saute pan.
  • Reduce this mixture by about 1/3.
  • Now, stir in your cheeses until the sauce is thick and creamy.
  • Season to taste with Salt and Pepper.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the Pasta.
  • Pour the mixture into a 9x13 baking dish and sprinkle the Bacon, Parsley and Panko over the top.
  • Drizzle the remaining olive oil over the top of everything and bake uncovered until lightly browned and bubbly (about 20-25 min).
