    Loved this! My hubby said it’s his favorite Mac and cheese I’ve made so far. I left out the Tabasco sauce, but kept the rest the same. My kids really enjoyed it too, but were not big fans of the Swiss cheese. I think I’ll try sliced Gouda next time, as it is just as cheesy, but doesn’t have such a sweet taste as Swiss cheese. Definitely a repeat recipe!🤗
