In a medium sauce pan over medium-high heat sweat the onions in the butter with the salt until translucent. Add the flour and whisk until smooth. Slowly add the milk in about cup additions, whisking smooth after each addition. Bring to a simmer and add 2 cups of the cheese and whisk smooth.

While the sauce is working bring the water and the salt to a boil in a large pot, add the pasta and simmer until just barely done. Drain and add the cheese sauce to the pasta.
