8 ounces elbow macaroni
6 slices Jones Dairy Farm Dry Aged Bacon, diced
2 1/2 cups heavy cream
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves, chopped
1 1/4 cups gruyère cheese, shredded

Kosher salt and fresh grated black pepper, to taste


Step 1
In large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions; drain well and set aside.

In a medium saucepan, combine heavy cream, garlic and thyme over medium heat. Bring to a slight boil and reduce by half, about 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in cheeses, a handful at a time, until smooth, about 1 to 2 minutes; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Stir in pasta and bacon until well combined.

Step 4
Serve immediately, garnished with bacon, if desired.
