Macaroni and Cheese


1/2 cup of bread crumbs
1 tablespoon melted butter
2 tablespoons butter (not melted)
8 ounces uncooked pasta (any shape)
1/4 cup diced onion
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups milk
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 2 quart casserole dish

Boil pasta as directed on package

While pasta is boiling, melt two tablespoons of butter in small saucepan.  Add onion and cook on low until it is translucent (should take about 5 minutes).

Stir in flour, salt, pepper and milk.  Simmer on low for 10 minutes.

Remove saucepan from heat and stir in cheddar cheese until melted.

Mix cheese with pasta and pour into casserole dish.  Sprinkle evenly with bread crumbs.

Bake uncovered for 20 minutes.

    My friend thought the macaroni and cheese was a bit too "oniony".  I really enjoyed it.  I love me some onions.
