This is an old family recipe for our favorite old-fashioned MACARONI AND CHEESE.  It's a great 'comfort food' and the whole family enjoys it--creamy and tasty!  This is also good re-warmed the next day.

2 1/4 cup elbow macaroni
4 1/2 Tablespoons butter
1/8 cup finely minced onion
3 Tablespoons flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
3 cups milk
12 oz. cheddar or sharp cheese, cubed
Cook macaroni as directed until barely done.  In another pan, melt butter.  Add finely minced onion.  Blend in flour, salt and pepper.  Slowly add milk, and cook until bubbly and thick.  Stir in cooked elbow macaroni.  Add cubed cheese and stir until melted.  Pour into a 1 1/2 qt. baking dish, that has been sprayed with a non-stick spray, and bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes.  Serves 6.
