Macaroni and Brie With Crab

Ingredients

1 medium sweet onion, halved and thinly sliced
5 Tbsp. butter
1 lb. dried medium shell pasta
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
3 cups milk
1 lb. Brie cheese, trimmed and chopped (reserve 8 small wedges for topping, if desired)
2 6- to 6.5-oz. cans 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.
  2. 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 according to package directions; drain and return to pan.
  3. 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.
  4. Gradually add chopped cheese; cook over medium-low heat until cheese melts. Stir into pasta. Fold in crab. Transfer to baking dishes.
  5. Place bread pieces in food processor; cover and process to coarse crumbs. Sprinkle crumbs over pasta mixture.
  6. 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.

Serves 8.

Oh man, this looks so so good. I've gotta try this. I looove brie. Speaking of canned seafood, have any good ways to use a can or two of salmon? I bought some but have no idea what to do with it!

Could it be done with a different cheese? I'm not a big fan of some brie's. And the one's that I do like I always forget the name of because I'm sampling them at a wine bar, lol. Could a sharp white cheddar be used or does it not work well with the crab?

Hmmm, with my appetite this may just make a serving for one. Soon to be very sick but incredibly happy serving of one, lol.

This just sounds amazing. Too bad I'm on day one of Phase One of the South Beach Diet, which means I can't have brie, macaroni, bread or butter. Boooooooooo!

I wonder if there's a better sub for all that butter...? Otherwise, this meal sounds delish!

I'm not a huge crab fan, but I love variations on mac and cheese. I think I will try to come up with some sort of brie mac and cheese recipe sometime in the next few weeks.
