DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Cook macaroni according to package directions.
  • Drain, rinse with cold water and set aside. Blond roux: Melt 1 stick of butter in small saucepan.
  • Add 3/4 cup of flour.
  • Blend well.
  • Cook while stirring constantly, about 3-5 minutes, until flour and butter are well blended and start to dry slightly.
  • Reserve for cheese sauce. Cheese sauce: In a large sauce pan, bring milk to simmer over medium heat. Whisk in 1/2 cup of the roux.
  • Continue to whisk over heat until smooth and sauce begins to thicken, about 10 minutes.
  • Saute diced onion in oil over medium heat until soft. Add onion to roux.
  • Next add Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, salt and pepper.
  • Whisk to incorporate all ingredients.
  • Begin to add cheddar cheese, gradually, in small amounts.
  • Whisk constantly to help dissolve. Add remaining cheddar, the Gorgonzola and 3/4 cup of Parmesan.
  • Whisk until smooth.
  • Mix cheese sauce with cooked macaroni.
  • Place in a large buttered oven-proof dish.
  • Top with bread crumbs and remaining 1 cup of Parmesan cheese. Bake for about 10 minutes or until hot. To brown, place under the broiler until top is evenly browned; watch carefully.
  • Note: The recipe says "8 servings", however it seems more like twelve or more.
