This has been on my "to make list" for quite some time. I made it for our monthly neighborhood social party and it was a HUGE hit! Everyone loved it!! I did use a homemade parsley-basil pesto, which I think really added to the unique flavor. This is a great recipe. Thanks for sharing! As for the name, I just kept calling it fancy Mac n' cheese :-)

My suggestion is: " delightful parisiene pasta with bacon"...

Calling this mac and cheese just really takes away from what a nice dish this is. Anything that calls for homemade pesto and proscuitto deserves a little more respect :) I definitely think it deserves a more enlightened name!
