Macaroni and cheese is classic comfort food that's warmed hearts and bellies around the world for ages.  Even though a certain blue box might make mac and cheese seem like a junk convenience food now, it was considered a very upper class meal for centuries throughout Europe and particularly in Italy.  Former President and ardent foodie, Thomas Jefferson, even served up a macaroni pie at a fancy white house party  in 1802!
