    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    2. Prepare the macaroni according to packet directions.
    3. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium high heat. Stir in the flour until a paste forms. Then pour in the milk and stir constantly until this comes to the boil, then stir for 1 more minute. Remove from heat and set aside.
    4. When the macaroni is cooked, spread 1/2 of it into the bottom of a lightly greased 23x33cm baking dish. Then layer 1/2 of the grated onion, 1/2 of the salt and pepper and 1/2 of each of the cheeses. Repeat this one more time: macaroni, onion, salt and pepper and cheeses, and then pour the reserved white sauce over all. Top off with small knobs of butter to taste, if desired.
    5. Cover and bake at 180 C / Gas 4 for 45 minutes.
