DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees and butter a 13x9 baking dish.
  • Bring the chicken broth to a boil in a medium saucepan and reduce it over high heat to 3/4's of a cup.
  • Bring the cream to a boil and reduce it to two cups being more careful with your heat with the cream so as to not scorch it.
  • A reminder; don't skip the reducing of the liquids or you will end up with soup and don't just sub the lower amounts to start out with; the concentrations lend a different flavor.
  • Melt the butter and olive oil in a large pot and cook the onions and garlic until tender and translucent.
  • Cook the pasta to desired tenderness.
  • Add the reduced cream and reduced broth to the onion/garlic mix then add the mustard, cheddar, gouda and gruyere cheeses and whisk until melted and well blended.
  • Add the pasta to the cheese sauce; mix well and put it buttered baking dish.
  • Top with the parmesan cheese and bake at 450 for 10-15 minutes.
