Reviews for Swiss Macaroni and Cheese
"Adding my star rating because it did not appear the first time."
"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."
"I did not like it, my husband and son did though."
