Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup elbow macaroni
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 cans (each 213 g) red sockeye salmon drained and flaked
  • 1 1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs

Method

In large saucepan of boiling lightly salted water, cook pasta according to package
instructions. Drain.

Meanwhile, in separate large saucepan, melt half of the butter over medium heat; cook onion and garlic, stirring, until onion is tender, about 4 minutes.
Sprinkle in flour; cook, stirring, until light golden, about 3 minutes.

Gradually whisk in milk until smooth. Add Worcestershire sauce and cook, whisking constantly, until thick enough to coat back of spoon, about 4 minutes.
Stir in Cheddar until melted. Stir in sour cream, salmon and pasta. Scrape into lightly greased 8-cup (2 L) casserole dish or baking dish.

Melt remaining butter; mix with bread crumbs and sprinkle over top of casserole. Bake in 350 F (180 C) oven until topping is golden and casserole is bubbly, 25 to 30 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
