Easy cheesy macaroni-a healthier version!

I made this recipe tonight for dinner. It's almost as easy as doing it from a box, and it's so much healthier! This is also from my favorite cookbook, Set for Life:

One-dish Macaroni and Cheese

1 T. butter
1 onion, chopped
2 c. uncooked vegetable macaroni
1/2 t. salt
dash pepper
1/8 t. oregano
1/2 t. dry mustard
2 c. water
2 T. flour
1 1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. shredded sharp cheese

Melt butter and add onion and uncooked macaroni, salt, pepper, oregano and mustard. Cook on low for 5-7 minutes or until onion looks clear. Add water and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 8-10 minutes or until macaroni is almost tender and most of the water is gone. Sprinkle flour over macaroni and mix well. Stir in milk and cheese. Heat through and serve.

Serves: 6-8
