Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cook pasta. Place in large bowl with cooked chicken and broccoli.

Make a roux with flour and butter; cook for a few minutes, slowly add milk whisking. Cook on medium whisking often until sauce thickens. Add salt, peper, whatever seasonings you prefer. I like to add a little dried mustard.

Remove from heat, add 1 c. of the cheese, mix til smooth. Pour over pasta mixture.

Place mixture into prepared baking dish. Top with bacon and remaining cheddar. Cook in preheated oven for 30 min or until bubbly, maybe a little browned on top.
