This is an easy dish to divide in half for a small family, or make a large one...great for leftovers. Sometimes, I'll pour it into two separate pans and freeze one for later. It's my family's all-time favorite Mac & Cheese, and the Italian herbs kick it up a notch!
Cook macaroni as directed on package, drain. Melt butter in saucepan; then saute onion in butter. Add flour, salt & pepper. Mix well.
2Gradually stir in: 4 c. milk
Stir constantly until smooth and thickened.
3Add herbs and cheese, stir over low heat, until cheese melts. Mix sauce and macaroni and pour into a 13x9" greased (I use Pam) baking pan.
Shred an extra 1 cup cheddar cheese to garnish top, then sprinkle with Paprika.
4Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.
