  1. Place the potatoes in a large pot and fill with enough water to cover them. Bring to a boil and cook until tender enough to pierce with a fork. Drain and cool slightly, then remove the peels, and slice into 1/4 inch thick slices.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x9 inch baking dish.
  3. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add macaroni and cook until barely tender, about 6 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  4. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook and stir until onion starts to turn translucent. Stir in the garlic, and cook for a few more minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  5. Layer the macaroni, onions and potatoes into the prepared baking dish. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle the shredded Gruyere cheese over the top, and drizzle cream evenly over the entire dish.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until the top is golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.

Different, but different does not necessarily translate to good. My family did not care for this dish. It was not very good. I will stick to a more traditional mac and cheese next time.

I thought this was good! Maybe a little bland...next time I will use 1 cup of Gruyere AND 1 cup of Emmentaller cheese, plus lots of salt and pepper! There were a lot of onions as is, but i did t...

Great recipe….My aunt from Switzerland makes it with 3 cups of cheese and no heavy cream. She uses Emmentaler Swiss cheese, Gruyere and Jarlseberg.

Since you slice the potatoes anyway, I scrubbed and sliced them before boiling and it only took 10 minutes, then kept the skin on for nutrition. I boiled the noodles only 4 minutes knowing they ...

Delish! Made this for my work holiday party and everyone asked for the recipe. Wasn't crazy about the apple sauce but the crunchy onions are a must!

We all enjoyed this unusual and tasty recipe!

We just got back from Switzerland and had this dish. It was made with the noodles and potatoes, but the onions were served carmelized on top. Excellent! I liked it so much, I came to here in se...

Different and tasty. We liked it better the more we ate it.
