So Mac N Cheese (homemade) was on the menu for last night, but I had picked up several boxes of Bow-Tie shaped pasta 4/$5 (plus free eggs) at Albies this weekend, so I decided to use that instead. As a result, here is my recipe for Cheesy Bow-Tie Casserole adapted from Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook's Macaroni and Cheese recipe.
Cheesy Bow-Tie Casserole
10 oz bow tie pasta, cooked al dente
2 TBS butter (I use a lower fat soft spread)
3/4 cup onions, chopped finely
2 1/2 cups milk (I used nonfat powdered, reconstituted)
2 TBS flour
2 1/2 cups cheese (I like to use Sharp, but a combo of cheddar and american works)
Directions: melt butter over medium heat. Add onions and saute until tender. Add flour and stir until onions are evenly coated. Add milk all at once. Stir and cook until slightly thickened. Add cheese and stir until melted. Add cooked noodles and stir. Put in 8 X 8 baking dish and bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes. Sprinkle additional small handful of cheese on top and cook until melted (3 minutes or so).
