We don't have Havarti or Muenster here, so I used Swiss instead....and skipped the breadcrumbs on the top ( not a fan).
Great mac recipe....made for a most enjoyable dinner.
Made for PRMR.

Yum...this is the ultimate comfort food. I used non-fat milk with a little fat-free half-and-half and Havarti cheese. So tasty and a little bit more grown up than usual!

This was a nice change from regular mac&cheese. I used Havarti, Cheddar and Parmesan. I got the remark from my two "mac&cheese experts" that I should add butter to bread crumbs next time to get them crunchy and that I should add a lot more parmesan. I will try that :)
