I clearly love to cook but I am so much more than that. I am a wife, a mother of two, digital marketing executive and an Autism support coach. Yep! My hands are full!

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
Step 2
In a large pot on medium-high heat, add the Unsalted Butter (1/4 cup) and cook until melted. Whisk in the All-Purpose Flour (1/4 cup) and cook for about 1 minute.
Step 3
Reduce heat to medium and add Milk (1 cup) , Heavy Cream (2 cups) , Dry Mustard (1 tsp) , and Ground Black Pepper (1/2 tsp) . Whisk until it begins to bubble.
Step 4
Reduce to low and add Shredded White Cheddar Cheese (2 cups) . Stir until melted.
Step 5
Add Pasta (1 lb) , stirring until combined. Remove from heat. Place the mac and cheese in an oven-safe skillet and flatten it lightly. Sprinkle Panko Breadcrumbs (1/4 cup) evenly over top and spray with Spray Butter (as needed) .
Step 6
Bake for approximately 10 minutes at 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). You may increase to no more than 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) if it's taking too long to become golden on top.
Step 7
While the mac and cheese bakes in the oven, cook the Pancetta (1 pckg) in a pan until golden with no oil. It will release its own fat.
Step 8
Once mac and cheese is ready, sprinkle the cooked pancetta over top and enjoy!
