We were there recently and DH fell in love with this, it has bacon and mushrooms also. I found a video on line but they just showed a chef putting this and that in the pan and topping it with bread crumbs then into the broiler.
I've never eaten there but here is a recipe on the web. Is this similar?
Johnny Carino's Mac and Cheese
1 box elbow macaroni cooked and strained (16 oz for an 8 x 8 pan)
1 jar of Ragu cheese sauce
shredded cheese of any kind
1 package of pepperoni
Cut the pepperoni and half or leave them whole and layer macaroni, pepperoni, cheese sauce and shredded cheese in an 8 x 8 greased pan (you can even add a little milk to the mix for added creaminess). Sprinkle shredded cheese and bread crumbs over the top.
Bake at 325 degrees (or 350 because my oven runs hot) for about 20 minutes.
It doesn't say how much cheese so I would use your own discretion as to how cheesy you like it.

We all like Emeril's 4 Cheeses and Macaroni.
This appeared in our Food Section today and I thought it sounded good. It was adapted from Southern Living magazine. Don't know when I'll get around to trying it.
