Noodles, Peas and Cheese

1 1/2 cups dried macaroni
1 1/2 tbsp. butter
1 1/2 tbsp. flour
2 tsp. dried mustard
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. white pepper
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
3 hot dogs, cut into 1/4 inch rounds
1 cup peas
1 tbsp. butter, melted
1/2 cup bread crumbs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Boil macaroni following package directions. Drain.

Meanwhile, melt butter in a large saucepan. Add flour and spices and saute until flour is cooked. Add the milk and stir vigorously. Bring to a boil, still stirring. Remove from heat and add cheese, stirring until cheese it melted. Add the macaroni, peas and hot dogs. Pour into a casserole dish. Mix melted butter and breadcrumbs and spread mixture evenly over the top of the macaroni and cheese. Bake for 30 minutes. Broil the casserole a little at the end to brown the breadcrumb mixture.

Serves 4.

I am sure that this would be a children's favorite as well. It passes the test for me, an adult with a childlike intellect!
