Macaroni and Brie with Crab
Ingredients
  •  Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1  medium  sweet onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 5  tablespoons  butter
  • 1  pound  dried medium shell pasta
  • 1/3  cup  all-purpose flour
  • 3/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/2  teaspoon  ground black pepper
  • 3  cups  milk
  • 1  pound  Brie cheese, trimmed and chopped (reserve 8 small wedges for topping, if desired)
  • 2 6 - 6 1/2 ounce can  lump crabmeat, drained, flaked, and cartilage removed
  • 3  slices  firm white bread, torn into large pieces
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat eight 14-to 16-ounce individual baking dishes with cooking spray; set aside. In large skillet cook onion in butter over medium-low heat about 15 minutes or until tender and golden brown, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, cook pasta in 4-quart Dutch oven according to package directions; drain and return to pan.

2. Add flour, salt, and pepper to onion in skillet; stir until combined, about 1 minute. Add milk all at once. Cook and stir until slightly thickened and bubbly. Gradually add chopped cheese; cook over medium-low heat until cheese melts. Stir into pasta. Fold in crab. Transfer to baking dishes.

3. Place bread pieces in food processor; cover and process to coarse crumbs. Sprinkle crumbs over pasta mixture. Bake, uncovered, 20 to 25 minutes or until heated through and crumbs are golden brown. If desired, add a wedge of Brie to each dish the last 5 minutes of baking time. Makes 8 servings.
