"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Directions:
Directions:
Boil noodle to slightly underdone. Preheat oven to 350. As you are waiting for pasta to cook, heat milk until barely simmering. Remove. Process cubes of crusty bread until you have at least 1 cup (if it is a day old it will make it easier on you). Set aside. Start your roux (a cooked mixture of butter, flour) melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour. Cook 1 to 2 minutes without over browning. Wisk in milk. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add the jack cheese by handfuls at a time and mix well. Toss the pasta with the chees add the chicken. Fold in the feta cheese (4oz mild 6oz potency). Add salt (keep in mind the bacon has salt) pepper and cayanne pepper. Spray a large casserole dish with pam. Spread pasta mixture into dish, sprinkle breadcrumbs evenly over pasta. Melt the remaining 2 table of butter and pour over breadcrumbs. Bake in the oven, uncovered for 40 minutes or until top has browned. Cook bacon drain on a paper towel and crumble. Discard most, but no all, of the bacon drippings. Brown the mushrooms in the bacon drippings. Add a pinch of salt to bring out a little of the moisture. When macaroni is ready, serve some up in a bowl, and top with mushrooms, crumbled bacon and drizzle with truffle oil
