Heat the remaining butter in a skillet and saute the onion until slightly softened, about 2 minutes. 3. Mix the onion, pepper, and Cheese Sauce with the penne. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and bake in a pre-heated 4250 oven for 15 minutes until the bread crumbs are lightly toasted. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. MAKE IT LIGHT: Reduce butter to 2 teaspoons and substitute the Light Version Cheese Sauce. MAKE IT AHEAD: Prepare the recipe. Unbaked, the penne can be stored up to 1 day in the refrigerator or 1 month in the freezer. If frozen, extend baking time by 25 minutes. SERVING SUGGESTION: Serve this as a main dish with a green salad for a light menu. For heartier fare, serve as a first course, followed by grilled chicken, meat, or fish.
