Cheese Fondue Casserole
Ingredients
  •  Nonstick cooking spray
  • 3  cups  dried elbow macaroni (12 ounces)
  • 3  cups  shredded Swiss cheese (12 ounces)
  • 2 1/2  cups  shredded Gruyere cheese* (10 ounces)
  • 5  tablespoons  all-purpose flour
  • 3  cloves  garlic, minced
  • 2  cups  chicken broth
  • 3/4  cup  dry white wine
  •  Salt
  •  Ground black pepper
  • 8  ounces  Swiss cheese, cubed
  • 1 3/4  cups  crushed saltine crackers (36)
  • 3  tablespoons  butter, cut up
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 3-quart casserole with cooking spray; set aside. Cook macaroni according to package directions; drain. Return macaroni to pan; set aside.

2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine shredded Swiss cheese, Gruyere cheese, flour, and garlic. Toss to combine. In a large saucepan heat broth and wine over medium heat just until bubbles form around edge of pan. Add cheese mixture, 1 cup at a time, whisking constantly after each addition until cheese melts. (Mixture may not be completely smooth at this point.) Do not boil. Remove from heat. Season to taste with pepper.

3. Pour cheese mixture over macaroni; stir gently to combine. Fold in cubed Swiss cheese. Spoon pasta mixture into prepared casserole. Sprinkle crushed crackers evenly over top; dot with butter.

4. Bake, uncovered, for 35 to 40 minutes or until bubbly and topping is golden.

From the Test Kitchen*Note:
  • For best results, shred the cheese just before using. Purchased preshredded cheese does not melt as well.
