Ingredients

3 cups (750 mL) macaroni or 
small pasta shells
1 tbsp (15 mL) butter
1 finely chopped onion
1/4 cup (60 mL) all-purpose flour
3 cups (750 mL) Milk, heated
1 tsp (5 mL) Dijon mustard
2 cups (500 mL) shredded Canadian old Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup (60 mL) freshly grated Canadian Parmesan cheese
1 can (28 oz/796 mL) diced tomatoes, drained
1 tsp (5 mL) salt
1/2 tsp (2 mL) pepper

Preparation

Cook macaroni according to package directions; drain well.

Meanwhile, in heavy saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; cook onion until softened. Add flour and cook, stirring, for 1 min without browning. Gradually whisk in milk until smooth; whisk in mustard. Cook, stirring often, for 10 to 12 min or until thickened (do not boil).

Remove from heat; stir in Cheddar and Parmesan cheeses until melted. Drain tomatoes again and stir into sauce along with salt and pepper. Pour over macaroni and toss to coat.

Tips

Buy a wedge of Parmesan cheese and grate it yourself for the best flavour.

For the Adventurous: Add 1/4 cup (60 mL) chopped fresh basil along with the tomatoes.

Healthy Eating Tip: Say cheese- Did you know studies suggest that eating aged cheese, like Cheddar, may help reduce cavities and root decay? Cheese is also packed with nutrients like high-quality protein, making it a great choice for vegetarians.
