    1      cup           Fontina cheese -- shredded
      1/2  cup           Gruyere cheese -- shredded
      1/2  cup           Emmenthaler cheese -- shredded
      1/2  teaspoon      thyme
      1/8  teaspoon      nutmeg

      1/4  cup           bread crumbs
      1/4  cup           Parmesan cheese -- grated
 
      Boil pasta according to package directions, undercooking slightly, and
 drain.
      Melt butter, stir in flour, and cook roux one minute. Gradually whisk in
 stock. Bring mixture to a boil and boil one to two minutes. Whisk in sherry
 and cream and bring just to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in fontina,
 Gruyere, and Emmenthaler cheese until the cheese melts. Season with thyme,
 nutmeg, salt, and pepper to taste.
      Pour into a 9 x 13 baking pan. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and Parmesan
 cheese. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes.
