Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bring water and 1 teaspoon salt to a boil in a Dutch oven and add the pasta. Cook for 8 minutes until al dente. Drain and set aside. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium high and cook the onion for 5 minutes until tender. Put in the flour and cook while stirring for about 2 minutes.
