DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven at 350°F.
  • Cook pasta in boiling salted water until al-dente. Drain and set aside.
  • Heat the milk in the microwave, on high for 1-1/2 minutes.
  • In a medium saucepan, melt butter. Add salt, pepper and chopped onion. Sauté on medium heat, until the onion is transparent and soft, but not brown.
  • Sprinkle the flour on top, and allow the butter to absorb some of it before stirring.
  • Add the hot milk in 3 additions, stirring constantly. The mixture will get thick very quickly.
  • After the final addition of milk, continue heating the mixture, on medium heat, stirring constantly, until thick and bubbly.
  • *Remove from heat* and stir in the grated cheese, chives and red pepper flakes.
  • Add the drained pasta and mix well.
  • Fold in the cubed cheese.
  • Pour into two greased onion soup bowls.
  • Bake for 20 - 25 minutes.
  • Allow to cool a bit before serving.
