Interesting, I'll give that a go, I'm forever playing with Mac&Cheese but not with bacon, as yet :)

I sort of raised my kids on it a couple of nights of the week, often with tomato added but had to keep the cheeses reasonably mild for kids. They always devoured it so guess I had it right :)

Cheers

Ive made a lot of bad mac cheeses in the past but this one was quite good. Id never used blue cheese before but its a terrific ingredient.

Got me looking forward to the blue cheese steak sauce

I had a quattro formaggi (4 cheese) sauce on a type of gnocchi in La Spezia
That sounds similarish was delicious
It was off menu and the owners favourite


Quattro formaggi traditionally those four cheeses include mozzarella, Gorgonzola, Parmesan, and a fresh creamy cheese such as Robiola, Stracchino or Fontina.

I'm not going to ask how you mess up an M&C :)

I think I literally learned to make that on my mother's knee :)

You'll love the blue cheese sauce :)

Close to that minus the mushrooms.
It was on a type of gnocchi but they didnt call it gnocchi probably a local dialect or name for it.
It was a husband wife and son run place I got on real well with the husband he spoke no English and I spoke virtually no Italian but we understood each other perfectly.
He had relatives in Adelaide and knew the word hello,I speak pathetically bad school boy French and know a hand full of cliché Italian words most travellers know and it was enough.
This was what his wife made for him as it was his favourite so I got  it too.

Heres a translated Italian one that has a roux  instead of cream
https://translate.google.com.au/translate?hl=en&sl=it&u=http://www.misya.info/ricetta/pasta-ai-quattro-formaggi.htm&prev=search
and this one just has milk no cream
https://translate.google.com.au/translate?hl=en&sl=it&u=http://ricette.giallozafferano.it/Pennette-ai-4-formaggi.html&prev=search

I need to try a few and see which one tastes most like it.

They also made a octopus meatball which was his second favourite dish I liked that too
We went there every night for a week it was that good.
 
Its the next town down from Cinque Terre we would catch the train every day and explore the 5 villages

 I think I know that place Snags - spent a lot of time in Italy in my service days and been back a lot since -came THIS close to marrying a beautiful girl in Brindisi but I'm not Catholic, actually I'm not anything, so her folks did not approve -shame, but I'm not going to pretend I believe in a God I do not believe exists...
