Photo by: Joseph De Leo

Gruyere cheese is what makes this dish so unique. However if not available, you may substitute Swiss cheese

Yield: Serves 6

INGREDIENTS
  • 8 ounces whole wheat macaroni
  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • 4 ounces Gruyere cheese, finely shredded
  • ¼ cup low-fat milk, hot
  • Pinch of nutmeg, mixed with the milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Strain and return the pasta to the pan.

Mix in the oil with the pasta. Add the Gruyere and flavored milk. Heat on low heat, mixing constantly, and cook until the cheese is melted. Remove from heat, season to taste, and serve immediately.
