    Buster's friend's Note:

    This sounds so good for my tender mouth. Found it in The Seattle Times (LOL) who attribute it to being from From "Macaroni & Cheese" by Marlena Spieler. My tender tooffs thank you Marlena. If this keeps up I'll have to be buying your book.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cook pasta in a large pot of rapidly boiling water until almost al dente. Reserve cup cooking water, then drain.
    2. 2
      In a large, heavy-bottom saucepan lightly saute onion over medium heat in olive oil until it softens, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in garlic, cook for a minute, and sprinkle in flour. Cook 1 minute. Remove from heat and add bay leaf and milk all at once. Return to heat and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon, 5 minutes or until sauce thickens. If any flour lumps remain, whisk with a wire whisk for a few moments. Remove from heat, discard bay leaf and set aside.
    3. 3
      Combine pasta with sauce and mix in diced bell pepper, mustard seeds, thyme, paprika, chili powder, prepared mustard and dry mustard. Reserve about 1/2-cup grated cheese and add remaining to pasta. Stir in olives and hot sauce. Taste and add salt and pepper to taste. Pour into a 2 1/2-quart casserole. Sprinkle top with reserved cheese and breadcrumbs. Dot with butter.
    4. 4
      Bake 30 minutes or until topping is golden, the cheese melted and the crumbs crispy.

      Very very good. Fairly easy to make and can be used as a main dish or a side dish. The prep time is 20 min at least. I reserved the water from the pasta but did not know where to use it. I will make it again I enyoyed it. I thank the chef for their recipe
