ingredients

1 pound elbow macaroni
4 tablespoons butter
3/4 pound mushrooms, chopped
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 1/2 cup milk
3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese, packed
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
8 slices thick-cut bacon, chopped
1 cup French bread crumbs

directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter 13x9x2" glass baking dish. Cook pasta in large pot of boiling salted water until tender but still firm to bite, stirring occasionally. Drain.

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in large pot over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and onion; saute until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes.

Stir in flour, mustard, salt, and pepper; cook 1 minute. Gradually whisk in milk. Cook until sauce is smooth and slightly thickened, whisking constantly, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Add cheese and parsley; stir until cheese melts. Mix in pasta.

Saute bacon in medium skillet over medium-high heat until crisp. Using slotted spoon, transfer bacon to paper towels to drain. Mix half of bacon into pasta and transfer to prepared dish. Sprinkle with remaining bacon.

Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter in small saucepan over medium heat. Add bread crumbs; saute until beginning to brown, about 3 minutes.

Sprinkle bread crumbs over pasta. Bake until pasta is heated through and golden brown, about 20 minutes.
