    blucoat's Note:

    This is a rich and delicious macaroni & cheese from Bon Appétit Magazine (May 2009). You can use any combination of good melting cheeses such as Gruyere, Emmentaler, Fontina, or cheddar. It works with kale, chard, or spinach. If you omit the greens, this also makes a great traditional mac & cheese. If you want a creamier macaroni & cheese, just add a little more milk until you get the desired consistency.

      This was amazing! My 7-year-olds had seconds and thirds. We had a bunch of chard in our organic produce delivery and I wanted to introduce it to my kids in a positive way. I used Gouda and Fontina cheese (since I couldn't find Edam at Trader Joe's). I did make my own bread crumbs as per the directions, and everyone commented on how it added a great crunch/texture. My only suggestion would be to put the water up (for the chard/pasta) before you get started on the cheese sauce. Also, I put the drained chard in the fridge for a few minutes to cool it down quicker. Thanks for a great recipe!
