Baked Macaroni and Cheese

I made this yummy baked macaroni and cheese for dinner last night. It was a huge hit with everyone but Jake who all of a sudden freaked out because it had onions in it. He has had a hard week.....I am sure he would love it if he didn't see me adding the onions. I got the recipe from another cooking blog called triedandtrues.

1 (12 ounce)bag elbow macaroni
1 pint heavy whipping cream
1 (8 ounce)bag shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 (8 ounce)bag shredded four cheese blend
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 cup chopped onions (walla walla or vidalia if available)
garlic powder
ground black pepper
****I added little pieces of ham to the mac and cheese as well****
Pre-heat oven to 400.
Bring water to boil, then add pasta. Cook uncovered for 8-10 minutes (as directed on package).
While macaroni cooks, chop onions to desired consistency.
Drain pasta and rinse with hot water.
Place pasta back into pot with 2 tbsp butter and stir to cover so pasta does not stick.
Stir in onions and cheese.
Pour in heavy whipping cream and stir until nicely mixed.
Add garlic powder and black pepper to taste.
Scoop mixture into covered casserole dish and bake for 30 minutes, then check for desired bubbliness. ;).
