  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a large casserole dish.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Place the macaroni in the pot, cook 9 to 11 minutes, until al dente, and drain. Transfer to the prepared casserole dish.
  3. In a skillet over medium heat, cook and stir the ground beef and onion until beef is evenly brown and onion is tender. Stir in the wine, and continue cooking 1 minute. Mix in the milk, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce. Season with salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper. Continue to cook and stir until heated through. Whisk the flour into the skillet, and gradually stir in 2 cups cheese until melted. Mix in the thyme and cherry tomatoes.
  4. Stir the skillet mixture into the casserole dish with the macaroni. Top with remaining cheese.
  5. Cook uncovered 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until bubbly and lightly brown.

I liked this. My husband liked this. My mother-in-law liked this. My 3 1/2 year did NOT like this. Go figure. Maybe it was the Worchester. My only caution is that you must use sharp cheddar...

I thought this was a tasty twist on macaroni and cheese. I added more cheese on top and sprinkled bread crumbs over them for some crunch. Will make again.

We really liked this recipe. We did add an extra 1/2 cup of cheese and extended the cooking time to 40 minutes.

This recipe was pretty good. It did need a little extra kick. Definately cut the flour in half and cover the dish while in the oven.

I was in kind of a hurry tonight and did not read the reviews before I made this recipe - let's just say I learned my lesson! This recipe calls for too much flour, so I added a lot more milk to ...

~*~WE TRIED THIS RECIPE WITH MINCED TURKEY MEAT AND READYMADE CHEESE SAUCE {INSTEAD OF THE FLOUR % MILK} AND WE ADDED IN RED AND YELLOW PEPPERS TOO...IT WAS ABSOLUTLY DELIOUS...IT IS NOW A FAMIL...
