Why I Love This Recipe

The word 'macaroni' is derived from the Italian word 'maccheroni,' which is believed to have originated from the ancient Greek word 'makaria,' meaning 'food made from barley.' However, modern macaroni is made from durum wheat semolina, a type of wheat known for its high protein content and firm texture.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 pound elbow macaroni
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Optional: 2 tablespoons vegetable oil or 1/4 cup milk to help create a smoother sauce


Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the elbow macaroni and cook according to package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.

If using oil or milk, gently heat it in the pot and then add the cooked macaroni and shredded cheddar cheese, stirring until the cheese melts and coats the pasta evenly. If not using oil or milk, simply mix the hot macaroni with the cheddar cheese directly in the pot, allowing the heat of the pasta to melt the cheese.

Serve hot and enjoy!

Pairs Well With

A crisp, refreshing hard cider or a tart, fruity sangria to balance the richness of the cheese.
