Homemade Macaroni & Cheese

Homemade Macaroni Cheese


1 cup whole macaroni noodles
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
2 cups soy milk
1 onion, chopped
1/2 green pepper chopped
black pepper to taste(and any other seasonings you like)
1 can of black olives, drained
2 1/2 cups shredded cheese(we use the fiesta blend)
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup bread crumbs

Preheat oven to 350�

Boil the macaroni until it is undercooked, drain and set aside. Meanwhile in
a saucepan melt the butter and whisk in the flour. Whish in the milk. Add
the onion, green pepper and seasonings. Stir and cook for 15minutes. Don't
let it boil. Add to the macaroni(I just add it all back to the pan that the
noodles were cooked in). Add green pepper & black olives and 2 cups of
cheese. Pour half into a greased casserole. Sprinkle the last bit of cheese
over it then add the rest of the macaroni. In a small skillet melt the
butter, add the bread crumbs and toast. The spread over the macaroni. Bake
for 30 minutes.

serves 5 as a side dish. If you double it it will fit in a 9x13 pan.
