A Swiss version of mac and cheese

Top Review by Karen Elizabeth

This waas delicious!!!!! I used lumache (snail shell pasta) since I find they hold sauce very well, I really like them for baked pasta dishes. I subbed cream for about 1/3 of the milk, and I forgot that the bacon was for on top, so I mixed it in .. very nice, though! I also used up about 20 gr of creamy blue cheese that was in the fridge, in addition to a generous use of cheese! This was a rich and creamy, decadent mac 'n 'cheese, we really enjoyed it, and DH is the lucky one who gets the leftovers for lunch, grr! Loved this recipe, made for I Recommend tag game.
