    Manami's Note:

    For a milder flavor, substitute white Cheddar for the Gruyère and Monterey Jack for Gouda. Cottage Living 9/2006. Have tweaked it with 2% milk and it turned out fine, it was all we had.Update: 06/26/2009 - leave out the salt because the cheeses and prosciutto have enough salt. The hot sauce makes the dish, even when you don't like it - it makes it special.")

      This is "to die for" comfort food! It actually got a round of applause from my whole family. I substituted Monterey Jack for the Gouda and I used 2% milk and it turned out great. I left out the salt and it was still plenty salty from the prosciutto. This is the perfect meal for a cold rainy day.....loved it!

      This is my 20 yr. old son's absolute favorite meal! I make it as is using all the yummy cheeses and parmasian reggiano . I tried making it with bacon once instead of the prosciutto and it was not as good, will not do that again. You can omit the salt it you salt your pasta water. The cheeses and meat have plenty of salt for flavor! If you love mac n cheese this is a must try!
