Seen as early as the 14th century and gaining popularity in the US by endorsement of Thomas Jefferson, Mac 'n Cheese has been a uniting dish among many cultures, and a central part of our childhoods.
But what makes Mac 'n Cheese? Is it the shape of the pasta or the presence of the creamy sauce that holds more inherent value?
It's time to settle this once and for all: Are you Team Sauce or Team Macaroni?
A classic Mac n' Cheese
You are a part of the distinguished Team Macaroni if you believe:
* The sauce does not make the dish.
* Melted cheese can be just as satisfying in texture as a traditional cheese sauce...
* ...especially with multiple kinds of cheese (mmmm)
* Spaghetti noodles would simply not do the job, even if you had the best cheese sauce.
* Heathens who put spaghetti in cheese sauce are wrong.
A delicious, cream free mac 'n cheese. Imagine some mozzarella in there too. Are you drooling? I am.
Now, the other side: Team Sauce
You are part of Team Cheese sauce if you believe:
* The sauce in Mac n' Cheese is, objectively, the best part of the dish.
* Any pasta, even spaghetti, could be substituted for macaroni and still be Mac n' Cheese.
* You will fight for your right to Beschamel.
Spaghetti with cheesy, creamy, authentic "mac 'n cheese" sauce.
