The first time I ever had this was at the Bier Garden in Asheville NC. this is not as good but damn close!
5 Tbls of butter
1/2 Cup of Flour
4 Cups of warm milk
2 cups of grated smoked gouda
1 Tbls of dijon
Salt and pepper to taste
3/4 of a Pound of cooked pasta
4 Slices of cooked bacon chopped
5 Green onions chopped- greens only
I start the pasta water to boil when I start my sauce. Melt your butter in a sauce pan whisk in the flour cook for 1 minute. Whisk in your warm milk and cook whisking until thickened. Off the heat sdd in the hot sauce, dijon, and cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Drain your pasta and put it back in the pot. Add in some of the sauce until its wet enough for you. Toss in the bacon and green onion and serve.
