This is a specialty from the Swiss kanton Graubuenden. It's also popular in upper Italy, where it is called "Pizzoccheri". Nowadays, the cheese which is used mostly is parmesan cheese, but if you want to make it authentic, try to get some gruyere-like Swiss cheese.
I listed this as "German" dish because JAP doesn't have Swiss to choose.
