Macaroni is baked with smoked Gouda, Swiss, white cheddar, goat cheese and Parmesan and topped with crispy prosciutto - so worth it.


  • 16 ounces elbow macaroni
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1 medium onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup white wine, or reduced sodium chicken broth
  • 4 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 5 ounces goat cheese, fresh
  • 5 ounces white cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 5 ounces Swiss cheese, shredded
  • 3 ounces smoked Gouda cheese, shredded
  • 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup panko (Japanese) bread crumbs
  • 4 ounces prosciutto, thinly sliced and chopped


  1. Cook macaroni according to package directions until al dente.
  2. Meanwhile, in Dutch oven, heat butter over medium high heat. Add onions; cook and stir 4 to 6 minutes or until golden brown. Add garlic; cook 1 minute. Stir in flour until blended; gradually stir in wine. Add cream, pepper and salt; bring to a boil, stirring constantly for 2 minutes or until thickened.
  3. Reduce heat to medium low. Add goat cheese; stir until melted. Gradually stir in the remaining cheeses; cook until melted. Remove from heat.
  4. Drain macaroni; stir into sauce. Transfer to a greased 13 x 9 baking dish. Sprinkle top with bread crumbs. Bake, uncovered, at 375F for 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
  5. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, cook prosciutto over medium heat for 5 to 7 minutes or until crisp, stirring frequently.
  6. Sprinkle over macaroni just before serving.
