Melt 3 tb butter on medium heat. Add half of an onion (chopped small) and cook until translucent. Add 1/4 c flour. Cook about 4 mins, until it is blonde looking. Whisk in 2c hot milk. Whisk well so it doesn't clump. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat. Let it simmer about 8-10 mins to thicken. Add 4 oz mild cheddar, 4 oz sharp cheddar, and a few splashes of your favorite hot sauce. When cheese is melted, add 1 can diced tomatoes (drained). Stir together. Add a pound of your favorite small pasta (already cooked). Let it cool and freeze it. (If you want meat in it, add desired amount of ground beef, chicken, or turkey.)
When you go to cook it, thaw it and top with bread crumbs. Bake on 350 until warm throughout and brown and crispy on top. Yum.
