Origins Of Macaroni and Cheese!

This week we have decided to feature some fun, simple and of course gloriously yummy recipes for Macaroni and Cheese!

While searching the internet for unique recipes I stumbled upon an article on the origins of Mac and Cheese. The earliest findings of macaroni and cheese are from the thirteenth century for a dish known as de lesanis. It was lasagne sheets made from fermented dough, cut into 2" squares, cooked in water and then tossed with parmesan. To me that does not sound very appetizing. I'll just stick with the box of Kraft Mac and Cheese. According to other articles the American version was brought back from Italy by Thomas Jefferson whose daughter is credited with creating the first dish using Macaroni and parmesan cheese.

However it was made, it was a genius dish indeed!

Enjoy the recipes!
