Bring 6 cups water (no salt) to rolling boil in medium saucepan.
Add pasta and cook until al dente, 6 to 8 minutes. (I like it to have a little hard bite because it get's baked it in the oven.)
Drain and put in large baking dish. Toss with Extra Virgin Olive Oil. If using ramekins, divide into 3-4 small ramekins.
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in large saucepan over medium-low heat.
Saute onion and garlic in butter for a few minutes to draw out the flavor
Whisk in flour and cook, whisking constantly, 2 minutes.
Gradually whisk in chicken stock, 2 cubes chicken bouillon, heavy cream, half n half, and sugar.
Simmer gently, stirring often, 15 minutes.

Season to taste with pepper.
When cheese has completely melted add lemon slice to mixture. Remove after a couple minutes.
