Spinach and Feta Macaroni and Cheese

1/2 c. Italian Seasoned Bread Crumbs
1 Tbs. Butter
1/4 c. white onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 Tbs. flour
2 c. milk
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 c. feta cheese crumbles
1/3 c. Parmesan cheese
5 c. coarsely chopped fresh spinach
4 c. hot cooked elbow macaroni (2 c. uncooked)

Melt butter and add onions and garlic cooking until tender. Add flour, stirring constantly to make a paste. Slowly add milk, salt, and pepper. Keep stirring until the sauce gets thick. Remove from heat and stir in the feta and Parmesan cheese. Sauce will be a little lumpy from the cheese. I am not sure if feta ever properly melts. If you know let me know. Add spinach and macaroni to the sauce and mix really well. place in a greased casserole dish and sprinkle with the bread crumbs. Bake at 350 for 15-20 min or until bubbly. This serves 4 adults.

Note: This recipe actually calls for 1/2 c. Gouda instead of feta, but I like it this way better.
