Big Boy Mac-n-Cheese

About 5 years ago Mac-n-Cheese was a huge trend. I tried it in a few places and got sick of it really fast. It's just always missing something and now  think I know what it is. It's missing meat. I found this recipe on one of my Internet journeys and thinks is sounds creative enough to be actually be good.

Big Boy Mac-N-Cheese from Hole-in-the-Wall Smokehouse BBQ at Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak.

1 cup beer
2 cups heavy cream
1 tbsp chopped garlic
2 cups grated medium cheddar cheese
3 cups cooked elbow pasta
½ cup cooked and chopped bacon
Salt and pepper to taste

Bring beer to a simmer. Add chopped garlic and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Add heavy cream and let it simmer again. Add pasta. Let pasta cook for 1-2 minutes, then add cheese. Melt together for 3-4 minutes, then add bacon bits. Remove from heat and season to taste. Serve immediately.
