Cook macaroni according to package directions; drain. Place macaroni in a lightly greased 2 quart baking dish. Combine onion and next nine ingredients; stir in almonds. Cook milk in a small saucepan over low heat just until heated; stir into onion mixture (bread should disolve). Pour over macaroni. Bake @ 350° for 45 to 50 minutes. (I usually double this recipe and bake in a greased 13 X 9 baking dish).
