1-1 cups cheddar cheese, or any cheese you have

4 ounces elbow macaroni, cooked and cooled

In a saucepan over medium-high heat, saute onion and red pepper in butter until vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in flour, cook and stir for about 1 minute. Add the stock and cream and simmer until slightly thickened, 10-15 minutes.

Cook's note: You can use the noodles from the box of Kraft macaroni and cheese. Add the cheese mix to the soup for more cheesy flavor.
