Whenever we visited my husband's good friend, his wife made this dish. I was too shy to ask for the recipe, so I came up with this one. It is very creamy and rich, with a mild Swiss cheese flavor.

Adding my star rating because it did not appear the first time.

MY REVIEW

Nice twist on a basic pasta & white sauce recipe. I doubled the recipe and added a bit of shredded cheddar for more cheesy taste, but the Swiss still shines through. VERY tasty, I was licking the sauce off the spoon before I even added it to the pasta.

A word of caution, stir the milk almost constantly while waiting for it to boil or it will burn.
