Your family will be very pleased with this gooey baked mac and cheese

Macaroni and cheese was born in Italy. Since Italy is the land of pasta, that’s not very surprising. But did you know that an American president was the first to bring mac and cheese here? In the 1800s Thomas Jefferson tried macaroni and cheese on a trip to Europe and brought a hand-written recipe back to the White House.

Recipe tip: Make sure to use thinly sliced American cheese from the deli section of your grocery store in this recipe, not individually wrapped cheese “singles” — they are made from different ingredients.

  • 2 cups elbow macaroni (8 ounces)

  • 1 cup shredded mild cheddar cheese (4 ounces)
