Nothing screams comfort like that childhood staple of macaroni and cheese, whether it came in those classic
blue and yellow boxes or fancier, casserole styles with a variety of cheeses and toppings. And while there are an infinite range of macaroni recipes, chances are you're bound to associate the word "macaroni" with a certain dish. But did you know that, according to food historian Clifford Wright, macaroni is actually "the generic term for all dried alimentary pastas cooked in broth or water, also called pasta or noodles"?
Whatever specific associations the term conjures for you -- be it macaroni salad or mac and cheese, like us -- we'd like pay tribute to our favorite macaroni and cheese recipes. Serious Eats once asked how you like your mac and cheese -- why don't you take some tips from them, or share your own family recipes in the comments.
