Number of Servings: 12


    8 oz dry pasta (I use gemelli or spirals, smaller pasta may change serving size)
    1 tbsp unsalted butter
    1/2 medium onion, diced
    5 gloves garlic, minced
    2 tbsp flour
    1/2 cup skim milk
    8 oz sharp cheddar cheese, grated
    1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes with jalapenos (Del Monte or Rotel)
    1 tsp salt, or to taste
    freshly ground pepper to taste


Boil pasta according to package directions (al dente). Drain and set aside.
Melt butter in large sauce pan. Add diced onions, garlic, salt and ground pepper, and cook until onions are translucent. Sprinkle in flour, stir to coat onions evenly, and cook for another half a minute.
Add milk, diced tomatoes (with liquid from can) and grated cheese. Stir until cheese is completely melted and sauce has thickened slightly. Add cooked pasta, and stir to coat. Allow pasta to cook in the sauce for a couple of minutes or until any excess liquid has evaporated or been absorbed. Serve immediately...Yum!
Approx. serving size = 1/2 cup
