There's nothing quite like a good macaroni & cheese. Kids and grownups love it. It's perfect for a holiday dinner with family, but it can also be packed into little containers and given as a gift. This recipe makes about 8 servings.


INGREDIENTS

  • 6 ounces (1 ½ cups) elbow macaroni

  • 3 tablespoons butter

  • ¼ cup finely chopped yellow onion
