  • Ready In: 1 Hour
  • Yields: 6 servings
INGREDIENTS
  • 2 1/2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons white wine
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, divided

  • 2 cups quartered cherry tomatoes
DIRECTIONS
  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.

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.
