    Old-Fashioned Macaroni & Cheese

    8 oz. box elbow macaroni
    2 tablespoons finely-chopped onion
    1 teaspoon salt
    teaspoon pepper
    3 cups (or more) grated cheese (okay, I've used 4 cups)
    2 cups Thin White Sauce

    Heat oven to 375 degrees - cook macaroni as directed on package - combine macaroni, onion, salt, pepper and cheese in a two-quart ungreased casserole, stir - pour white sauce over casserole - cover - bake 30 minutes with cover - remove cover - bake 15 more minutes.


    Thin White Sauce

    2 tablespoons butter or margarine
    2 tablespoons flour
    teaspoon salt
    teaspoon pepper
    2 cups milk

    Melt butter in saucepan over low heat - blend in flour, salt and pepper - cook over low heat, stirring until mixture is smooth and bubbly - remove from heat - stir in milk - heat to boiling, stirring constantly - boil and stir one minute.
    This is how I make mine too except I don't always bake it as hubby likes it pretty runny so it turns into saucepan macaroni and cheese.

    Medium size Crockpot - easy! Spray crockpot. Turn on High. Melt 1/2 stick butter in it. Add 1 qt. milk. Add 2 cups dry macaroni. Add 8 -10 ounces cheese. Stir well. Turn to Low. I let mine cook an hour or so and stir. Mine is usually done in about an hour and 15 minutes, depending on crockpot. There's just the 2 of us, so I freeze a couple of qt. baggies of it.
