Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees; grease a 3 quart baking dish or casserole dish; start bringing a large pot of water to a boil.
  2. In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt butter then add onions and saute until tender, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add pasta to other pot with water and boil for two minutes less than the package says to.
  4. Whisk flour into onion/butter mixture and stir for 2 minutes; stir in milk, whisking constantly until it thickens and starts to bubble.
  5. Remove from heat and stir in the salt, pepper, gorgonzola, fontina and 3/4 cup of the parmesan cheese until smooth and melted.
  6. Drain pasta well and return to large pot and add the cheese sauce and bag of spinach and mix well; pour into greased dish.
  7. Combine the remaining Parmesan and bread crumbs; sprinkle on top of macaroni; bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes; top should be lightly browned; cool for 5 minutes, garnish with parsley and dig in!
