1. In a small saucepan, melt the butter
over low heat, blend in flour and cook about 2 minutes.
2. Beat in the milk, then the cream and
cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture comes
to the boil and thickens. Remove from heat.
3. Stir in the cheese until melted, then
the crushed tomatoes, sugar and two peppers.
4. Stir in the macaroni.
5. Pour into a shallow, buttered baking
dish and bake in a preheated 400-degree oven until the surface browns,
25 to 30 minutes.
NOTE: This recipe
must have been broken down from one that made an enormous quantity,
which explains the small amount of light cream. If you don't want
to purchase a half-pint container of light cream just for two tablespoons,
simply add two tablespoons more milk. You'll never know the difference.
I also think it needs a little salt, which is not called for in
