    Kathy at Food.com's Note:

    Definitely NOT a diet recipe! From what I've been able to find out, the restaurant uses a modified Joy of Cooking recipe. gruyere cheese, heavy cream, no milk, and pipette pasta (little pipe). http://www.barillaus.com/Products/25/pipette.aspx

      Delicious, but I had to make a few adjustments because I use to work at J. Alexander's
