Wednesday, October 04, 2006 Homemade Mac & Cheese

This is apparently a "light" version but I don't see how. This is as comforting as chicken noodle soup. :)

1 onion, minced
3 tbsp. oil
3 c. milk
1/4 c. flour
2 c. shredded cheese
4 oz. light cream cheese or 1 c. mozzarella
1 tsp. dry mustard
1 tsp. thyme
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
3 c. macaroni
1/2 tsp. cayenne

1 c. bread crumbs
3 tbsp. butter, melted
2 tbsp. parmesan

I also often added diced tomatoes and zuchini to get some veggies in there.

Cook pasta until almost tender.
Saute onion in oil until tender. Add flour, then whisk in milk. Heat until thickened. Removed from heat. Add cheeses and spices. Stir until melted. Add cooked pasta. Put in greased casserole dish.

Prepare topping. Sprinkle on top of noodle mixtures.

Bake at 450 for 10 minutes until bubbly and golden brown.
