NOTE: This is the version made on the TV and NOT in the book. This seems like an improved recipe.

TIP: The cheese-blend we prefer is a combination of provolone, asiago, parmesan and fontina cheese. Itís sold in a plastic tub where the specialty cheeses are found at your grocery store.

Yes, certainly! Even no mushrooms, honestly. I don't even taste or notice them in it.

I am going to make this tomorrow. Do you think regular mushrooms would work?

Per serving: 384 calories, 14 g total fat (7.1 g saturated fat), 23 g protein, 38 g carbohydrate, 4.1 g fibre, 81 mg cholesterol, 644 mg sodium

Tip: The cheese-blend we prefer is a combination of provolone, asiago, parmesan and fontina cheese. Itís sold in a plastic tub where the specialty cheeses are found at your grocery store.


Yield: 6

Ingredients
1 tablespoon butter
2/3 cup minced onions
4 ounces (120 g) turkey bacon, chopped (about 7 slices)
1 cup finely chopped shiitake mushrooms
1/2 cup frozen sweet green peas
1 can (14 oz/380 mL) 2% evaporated milk
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard powder
1 cup packed shredded light old (sharp) cheddar cheese (4 oz/120 g)
1 cup packed shredded 4-cheese blend (4 oz/120 g; see Tip)
Freshly ground black pepper
2 cups uncooked whole wheat macaroni

Directions
You will need a deep, 10-inch, oven-safe non-stick skillet. Melt butter in skillet over medium-low heat. Add onions and chopped bacon.

Cook slowly, stirring often, until bacon is lightly browned and onions are golden. This will take a good 10 minutes. (You may want to get the macaroni cooking at this time.)

Add mushrooms to skillet and cook until tender. Stir in peas until heated through

Preheat broiler. In a large measuring cup or medium bowl, whisk together evaporated milk, flour and dry mustard. Add to bacon and veggies in skillet. Cook and stir until sauce is bubbly and has thickened.

Remove from heat and stir in 3/4 of the cheddar and 3/4 of the 4-cheese blend. Stir until cheeses are melted. Add pepper. Add well-drained macaroni and mix until well-coated with sauce. Sprinkle remaining cheddar and remaining 4-cheese blend over top.

Place skillet under broiler until cheeses are melted and lightly browned.
