Ingredients
2 1/4 cups elbow macaroni
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
4 cups milk
2 cups shredded marble cheese , divided
1 pkg  bacon , chopped

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Cook pasta according to package directions but reduce cooking time by 2 min. Drain.

Heat half the butter over medium heat in the same saucepan, stirring for 5 to 8 min, sprinkle evenly with flour. Cook for 2 min. Slowly whisk in milk until smooth. While stirring constantly, bring to a boil. Cook, stirring frequently, for 10 to 12 min or until sauce thickens slightly. Stir in 1 ½ cups cheese and prepared macaroni.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp, about 10 to 12 min. Add all except ¼ cup bacon to pasta mixture; stir to combine.
