More About This Recipe 

*	Though pairing cheese and pasta together is hardly a new idea, how
did macaroni and cheese become such a novelty in the United States? There
are a few theories for this, but the most popular can be credited to Thomas
Jefferson. It’s said that when Thomas Jefferson was president, he tried a
macaroni and cheese dish in Europe and liked it so much, that he famously
served it at a state dinner when he returned home. Fast-forward to 1937, and
Kraft Foods introduced a boxed version of macaroni and cheese (you know the
one!) and it skyrocketed to fame thanks to its quick preparation time and
cheap price. Though the blue box stuff is still incredibly popular today,
mac and cheese is enjoying a creative resurgence, with chefs in restaurants
and cooks at home putting their own homemade twists on the dish; baking it
in a casserole dish, combining different types of cheeses, adding proteins
and vegetables and even adding Alfredo sauce like in this tasty
Lickety-Split Alfredo-Style Mac and Cheese are just a few of the delicious
ways macaroni and cheese is getting a yummy makeover. Want to make more
