National Mac and Cheese Day History, Significance, Celebration Ideas:
Early settlers would make their own macaroni and cheese using recipes passed down from family to family. They would combine different cheeses and flavors to come up with a unique dish that might contain some cheese, pepper, onions, or a combination of any of those items. The recipe for National Mac and Cheese Day uses the traditional ingredients and has been updated and altered throughout the years. In recent years, the new recipe has been adopted by most Italian households. The tradition started in that country where cheese was used to enhance the tomato sauce called fettuccine.
The pasta and sauce were combined and allowed to sit while the cheese was grated. Then the mixture was mixed together with wine and spices to thicken the mixture which was allowed to sit overnight. The next morning, the mixture was combined again with milk and then cooked in the oven until it was golden brown and then served. When American families began celebrating the recipe for National Mac and Cheese Day in 1939, they honored the Italian immigrants who made the dish and used it for pasta and waffles throughout the continental United States.
Originally the pasta and sauce were put into a plastic casserole dish, but later that year, a new idea emerged for a fun dish. The recipe was to coat the dish with the sauce and then place it on a plate with macaroni mushrooms and macaroni noodles. Then a red sauce called a “noodle” was to be added to the dish. Instead of pasta, however, the dish used chicken pieces.
For this National Mac and Cheese Day, the recipe is unchanged, but the noodles have been changed to chicken strands. Chicken strands make for a lighter dish, while still maintaining the hearty taste of authentic cheese. Traditional macaroni and cheese are served with this delicious chicken noodle dish. It can be served plain with the sauce or served with a sauce mixed with vegetables and hot sauce. Some have even made it a zesty lemon sauce for a zesty twist to an already delightful dish.
