Baked Macaroni & Cheese
1 C elbow or seashell macaroni
1/4 C onion, chopped
1 TBS butter
1 TBS flour
Dash black pepper
1-1/4 C milk
2 C cheddar cheese, shredded
1 medium tomato, sliced
Cook macaroni in a pot of salted boiling water; drain well. In a saucepan, cook the onion in butter until tender. Stir in flour and black pepper. Add milk all at once. Cook and stir until slightly thickened and bubbly. Add shredded cheese; stir until melted. Fold macaroni into cheese sauce; blend well with a wooden spoon. Transfer mixture to a greased baking dish. Bake uncovered in a 350-degree F oven for about thirty minutes, or until bubbly. During the last five minutes of baking, arrange tomato slices on top of the macaroni.
