What you will need:
- 1 Pound Elbow pasta (I love using the Barilla with the Omega-3 or whole wheat pasta)
- 4 Tbs Butter
- 1 Onion finely chopped
- 1/4 All Purpose Flour
- 4 Cups Milk
- 2 C shredded Cheddar
- 2 C shredded Colby Jack mix
- 2 slices white sandwich bread
Preheat your oven to 375
Tear up the bread into small pieces. Throw that along with 1/4 cup of each cheese into a food processor. Set that aside, that will be your bread crumb topping
Whisk in the flour to coat the onion, it will turn into a "dough ball".
You will then add the milk in a slow, steady stream and whisk until there are no lumps. Cook that stirring often until it is thick and bubbly and coats the back of a wooden spoon (6 - 8 minutes).
Stir in remaining cheese until all melted, do not be afraid of the cheese, I honestly feel like you can't add enough. Add 1tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper (I usually just do it to my taste but I put in measurements for those who go by the book) *Make sure to taste here! You can add more cheese, more salt, whatever it needs while the cheese mix is easy to stir*
Toss the pasta and cheese together and transfer to a 9x13 inch baking dish and sprinkle on the bread crumb topping.
Bake in the oven until golden brown (about 30 minutes).
