Mac n' Cheese with a Dill Onion Twist

We seem to have homemade mac n' cheese more often than I would like. Its not too expensive and not really hard to make; and makes great left overs. But sometimes macaronis and cheese can get a bit boring; so tonight I changed it up a bit. If you would rather have the normal you can omit the onion and the dill.
