Four Cheese Gemelli with Bacon

Jump to recipe

Gemelli are a type of pasta whos name comes from the Italian word for twins.  These are the little, twisty shaped pasta and they do a splendid job holding sauce and flavors in their little nooks and crevices.

I used organic gemelli in this recipe.  I think that organic, whole wheat gemelli would also work well, and it would be a bit healthier.  Although, let’s not kid ourselves, this is a somewhat sophisticated twist on macaroni and cheese, and, while really delicious, it is loaded with fat, calories and carbohydrates.  It’s wonderful as an occasional indulgence.
