    VeggieHippie's Note:

    Corny title, but I made this for my hungry (and very picky) boyfriend. He's Italian, and it's hard competing with his mother and grandmother when it comes to good pasta dishes. With this one though, he went for back for THIRDS!

      Made for Zaar Challenge: Name Game. This was wonderful, I would have never thought of making a pasta dish using swiss cheese - don't think I've ever had it before. I was able to make this gluten free and also added grilled chicken to make a quick and easy one dish meal that I served with a side salad. Also, I did not add the thyme, but added dried parsley instead. This will definitely be on my list of quick meals. Thanks for posting this VeggieHippie!

      This was a really nice dish! The sauce was smooth and velvety and creamy, and went really really well with the brocolli. I didn't use any thyme at all though. I will make this again - my family devoured it! Thank you! I am updating this to give it an extra star, because over the last 2 years, it's been one of my 'go to' recipes on nights when i need something easy and delicious, with good leftovers. It's really a great recipe.

      This was ok but the thyme throws the taste off. Everythin else was fine in the dish we thought.
