Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe reminds me of the mac and cheese we were served as kids attending St. Francis Xavier Grade School. I tried it once many years ago after finding this recipe in my 1976 version of Better Homes & Gardens Cookbook and have made it ever since. I do double the recipe and bake in a 3 quart Corningware casserole dish. Sometimes I don't put the onion in or use the dried onion pieces instead of freshly chopped onion. And I have never put the tomato on top. Try this recipe...it's worth the extra effort!


Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/2 cups elbow macaroni
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
dash pepper
2 cups milk
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
8 ounces sharp process American cheese, cubed (2 cups)
1 sliced tomato
salt
