Add garlic. Whisk in the flour. Continue to whisk constantly for three to five minutes to cook out the flour flavor and create a smooth mixture.
Pour in milk and heavy cream. Stir in Dijon mustard and a pinch of nutmeg. Turn off heat and stir in shredded cheese and truffle oil. Stir pasta and mushrooms into the cheese sauce.
Layer the pasta with the ricotta filling in a baking dish. Top with toasted panko crumbs and more shredded cheese. Bake until nice and bubbly.
