– Peri & Sons Farms® Premium White Onion – Butter – Cavatappi or favorite macaroni noodle – All-purpose flour – Milk – Fontina, Gruyere and sharp white cheddar cheese – Dijon mustard – Cayenne pepper – Fresh thyme leaves
Step 1 In a large skillet, melt 3 tablespoons of butter. Cook pasta according to package directions until al dente. Drain the pasta.
Step 2 Once the butter has fully melted, add in your sliced Peri & Sons Farms® Premium White Onion and pinch of salt. Allow it to cook over medium-low heat until caramelized, about 30 minutes.
Step 3 While the pasta and onions are cooking, place 2 tablespoons of butter in a large pan over medium-high heat. Once the butter has melted, add in the flour and stir until combined. Allow the flour to cook off for about 1 minute.
Step 4 While using a whisk, slowly pour in the milk. Bring to a boil and reduce to medium heat. Simmer and stir until the sauce has thickened, about 5-6 minutes.
Step 5 Stir in the fontina, cheddar and 1 cup of gruyere cheese until the cheese has melted.
Step 6 Remove from the heat and add in the pasta, caramelized onions, cayenne, dijon, and thyme.
Step 7 Divide the mixture into 8 ramekins or a baking dish that has been pre-greased. Top with the remaining gruyere. Bake for about 20 minutes until the sauce is bubbly around the edges.
Step 8 To get the cheese golden brown, place under the boiler for about 2 minutes. Feel free to serve with fresh thyme!
