2 cups milk

2 cups grated cheddar cheese

2 cups grated gruyere cheese (may substitute Swiss)

1 pound blanched macaroni

1 cup edamames

Salt and black pepper, to taste


  1. In a large pot, heat the milk and add the 3/4 of each cheese. Stir in the pasta and soybeans. Check for seasoning. Place in ovenproof casserole and top with remaining cheese.
