    Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine shredded Swiss cheese, Gruyere cheese, flour, and garlic. Toss to mix. In a large pan heat broth and wine over medium heat just until bubbles form around edge of pan. Add cheese mixture, 1 cup a time, whisking constantly until cheese melts. Do not boil. Remove from heat. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

    Pour cheese mixture over macaroni; stir gently to combine. Fold in cubed Swiss cheese. Spoon pasta mixture into prepared casserole. Sprinkle crushed crackers evenly over top; top with butter. Bake, uncovered, for 35 to 40 minutes or until bubbly and topping is golden. Makes 10 to 12 servings. Note: for best results, shred the cheese just before using. Purchased pre-shredded cheese does not melt as well
