Macaroni and cheese Ask any kid to name three favorite foods, and it's a pretty safe bet that macaroni and cheese will be among them. The warm, creamy, comforting appeal of macaroni and cheese has made it an American classic that families keep coming back to generation after generation. It's a one-dish meal that's so quick and easy to prepare even the kids can get into the act. In fact, this once humble budget-stretcher, most often presented as elbow macaroni baked with creamy Cheddar cheese sauce, is gaining new fame as an oh-so-fashionable addition to trend-setting restaurant menus.
