Recipe: French Onion Mac N' Cheese

So this Recipe is for my cousin Ashley, she saw this episode of Rachael Ray, and immediately though of me, we often like the same shows and have the same taste for food, so I know I will love this recipe, and you will too!



Ingredients:

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 large onions, very thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon ground thyme
  • 1 teaspoon ground thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 pound penne rigate or whole wheat penne rigate pasta
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • Freshly grated nutmeg
  • 3/4 pound gruy√®re cheese, shredded

Directions:

  1. In a skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium-high heat. Stir in the onions, thyme and bay leaf for 5 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Lower the heat and cook until the onions are browned, 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a plate and discard the bay leaf. Reserve the skillet.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil, salt it, add the pasta and cook until al dente. Drain and return to the pot.
  3. In the reserved skillet, melt the remaining 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Whisk in the flour for 1 minute, then whisk in the chicken stock and milk and bring to a boil; season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Lower the heat and cook until thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the cheese until melted.
  4. Combine the onions and sauce with the pasta and toss well.
So what did you think?
