“This is a recipe my family has been using for a long time. Not sure where it originated from, but we definitely enjoy every bite!” - by tigershoes
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the fusilli, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a casserole dish.
- Melt the margarine in a large saucepan over medium heat; cook the onion in the melted margarine until translucent, about 5 minutes. Whisk the flour into the onion mixture; cook 1 minute more. Slowly pour the milk into the mixture while whisking until the milk is entirely incorporated. Add the cheese food, blue cheese, Cheddar cheese, salt, pepper, and mustard; cook and stir continually the cheese has melted and the mixture is thick; fold the pasta into the mixture. Pour the mixture into the prepared casserole dish.
- Bake in the preheated oven until the top begins to brown, about 20 minutes.

"Contrary to the other reviewer's statements, this recipe calls for 8 oz or 1/2 a package of pasta, which I found to be just the right amount to support the amazing, cheesy, rich sauce. I omitted the ..." See moreonion to suit personal taste, but followed the recipe for everything else. This is grown up Mac and cheese! Thanks for sharing, Tiger."
"This recipe asks for four ounces of macaroni. Four ounces is about a cup. The amount of sauce this makes is WAY too much for one cup of pasta! Luckily I made 8 ounces, thinking this was going to be a ..." See moreproblem. It was creamy, but I couldn't taste the blue cheese at all! It needed garlic too, I thought. If the measurements were right, then this would be a nice, creamy pasta but save your blue cheese for something you can taste it in! My favorite recipe is still Mom's Macaroni and Cheese (submitted by Maria Costello). "
"Oh my! This mac and cheese is absolutely delicious. I did double the pasta, so I automatically doubled the cheese sauce. Next time, I will only make one and half times the cheese sauce, because it..." See more was a little much for a pound of pasta. I tried it right out of the pan and it is just as delicious as baked. It is a sophisticated version of mac and cheese that adults and children will love. The blend of cheeses was perfect and I thought the blue cheese came through beautifully, since sometimes it can be overpowering. Thanks for the great recipe. It is going to be a definite keeper for me!"
