A recipe that came in my most recent TOH magazine by Mya Zeronis. Here is what is stated about the dish: Macaroni is baked with smoked Gouda, Swiss, white cheddar, goat cheese and Parmesan and topped with crispy prosciutto – so worth it!

Boy, this was VERY VERY GOOD, and flavorful. I did leave out the onion , and used chicken broth, and other than the kids digging in and in I would not change a single thing. Made for the 3 of us for dinner, as DS was working. Made for a quickie side to dinner with recipe#498353. Loved the use of panko, in this too. Made for PRMR tag.
