While everyone has heard of fondue, cheese is a standout in many other Swiss foods from the region, too, including this Älplermagronen mit ankestückli, or Alpine macaroni with applesauce. This is truly a Swiss Alpine farmer’s comfort food, a rib-sticking combo of potato, pasta, and cheese served with, of all things, caramelized onions and freshly made applesauce. Don’t even think about using store-bought applesauce; the homemade applesauce makes this dish truly spectacular.

Made this for dinner yesterday. I just made the potatoes and Mac and Ch part and it was fantastic. I made it as directed. I live on a ranch and this definitely warms you up and sticks to your ribs! Will definitely make it again.
Easy to make.Great twist and very flavorful with the apple sauce.
Loved it and will make it again and again!
I've made this once and it was great. Making it again for my granddaughter who is vegetarian. Didn't think the applesauce quite paired, but it was nice for a change.
