    cups milk

  • 1

    small yellow onion, thinly sliced

  • 1/2

    bay leaf

  • Pinch of grated nutmeg

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

  • 1/2

    lb. macaroni shells or other shape

  • 2

    Tbs. unsalted butter

Directions

Preheat an oven to 350°F. Butter a 10-inch square or similar baking dish, or 4 to 6 individual baking dishes. \..,:: To make the sauce, in a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the flour and cook, stirring, until the mixture forms a ball, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat and whisk in the milk, 1 cup at a time, mixing after each addition until smooth. Return the pan to medium heat and whisk until the mixture comes to a boil. Add the onion, bay leaf and nutmeg and season with salt and pepper. Reduce the heat to low, and cook, stirring frequently, until thickened, about 10 minutes. Strain through a fine- mesh sieve into a large bowl and cover to keep warm. You should have about 2 1/2 cups. Bring a large pot three-fourths full of salted water to a boil, add the pasta and cook until al dente (tender but firm to the bite), according to the package instructions. Drain, transfer the pasta to a bowl and stir in the butter. Add the sauce, 1 cup of the cheese and the cream, and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper Pour the pasta into the prepared dish and sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup cheese over the top. Bake until golden and bubbling, about 30 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving. Serves 4 to 6.
