This is like Mac N Cheese for grown-ups.
The pimiento and almonds lend great flavor and texture.

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).
