Spaghetti with Four Cheeses

This creamy and cheesy spaghetti dish is my mainstay whenever company's coming. The recipe, handed down from my aunt, is on the table in 30 minutes. As cook and hostess, I never feel hurried preparing this meal. —Nella Parker, Hersey, Michigan

    Super simple recipe with delicious results. A big hit at our house. We did substitute the prepackaged Sargento Six Cheese Italian Blend in the amounts called for in the recipe because our local grocery store did not carry Fontina on its own. Still turned out great.

    Made this with ham for Easter and was great. Used penne pasta instead of spaghetti and everyone loved it. Will make again!!!
