Cats ‘n Cheese:  Caramelized onions, sundried tomatoes, creamy cheese sauce and toasty breadcrumbs with Cats Ears.

What? you thought this was going to be a recipe for something else?

Besides, I’m allergic to cats.



Actually, I'm just pulling your leg...this isn’t really a recipe--just a bunch of general instructions.  You're smart.  You can figure it out.  I made up this sophisticated version of Mac 'n Cheese along the way.  Add whatever else you want…sauteed mushrooms, asparagus, artichokes.  MMMM.   Grab a bag of orecchiette; cook according to package instructions and drain.  Make a Bechamel (white sauce) and stir in 4 cups of grated cheddar cheese (I used half white and half orange).   In a saute pan, add 1/4 cup chopped sundried tomatoes (packed in olive oil) and 1  finely chopped onion.  Saute gently until the onions are transparent.  Buzz up a slice of good white sandwich bread in your handy dandy food processor; drizzle crumbs with EVOO and toss to mix thoroughly.  Pour the pasta, the onions & sundried tomatoes mixture and sauce into a large shallow casserole.  Sprinkle the crumbs over the surface.  Bake for 30 minutes  at 350 degrees F. or until crumbs are golden and sauce  is bubbly.
