National Macaroni Day

National Macaroni Day

Many people have had Macaroni in their lives since childhood. They first encountered it as a macaroni and cheese with hot dogs or peas, then they began making macaroni art as a way to take home to their families. There are many ways to enjoy pasta, but it is the elbow-shaped version that is most popular. This shape brings back fond memories and reminds people of better times.

Macaroni pasta is so versatile that it deserves its own day!

It would be a great place to begin is to look back at the story of this bold pasta and the important role it played in the history. Macaroni is made from durum wheat and is a small tube of pasta with no eggs.

It might seem hard to believe, but macaroni wasn’t the first type of pasta invented. It would be a shame to burst this bubble.

There are many other types of macaroni and pasta that are not as well-known. The little curved pieces in the blue box. These are elbow macaroni. But they’re not the only type! Now is the right time to tell everyone a little secret about the origins of macaroni.

Makaroneia, the original form of Makaroneia, is a Medieval Greek word.

What does this mean? Most people, especially children, would agree that it means “dirge”. Most people (especially kids) would agree that macaroni cheese and cheese are a dish worth dying to eat. So it is not surprising that Makaroneia, which means “dirge” or in this case “funeral meal”, is used for pasta. This makes perfect sense!

Macaroni isn’t only used in cheese and macaroni. This is a relatively recent version of the dish. This pasta, which is elbow-shaped, is used to make a American version of goulash. It serves as the starch component in a meat-rich dish. National Macaroni Day encourages everyone to explore the many possibilities contained in this small tube of pasta!

It’s now time to celebrate National Macaroni Day

It’s best to celebrate it by going out to get the blue box of macaroni cheese and cheese you loved as a child. Although it’s difficult to believe that powdered cheddar could taste so good, it is. This stuff is easy to make. Simply cook the ingredients, then add some butter and milk to it. Stir and enjoy!

After a few nostalgic moments, it’s time for the dish to grow up! It’s actually much easier to make homemade macaroni or cheese than you might think. Take a bag of macaroni, boil enough water to make enough for the amount of people eating it. Next, melt four types of cheese in a saucepan on the stove.

To make a roux, add some milk to the bottom of the saucepan. After it has become thick and bubbly, add the Sharp Cheddar and Parmesan cheeses. To achieve the desired consistency, add more milk to the mixture and stir well. For flavor, some people add a bit of butter and salt to the mixture.

You can add spices to your dish! Garlic, onion powder, and a pinch of Italian seasoning. To make it truly spectacular, add the cheese sauce and mixed noodles to the dish. Then, bake it in a 350 degree oven until it turns light brown. Absolutely delish!

Make jewelry from macaroni for the kids or your grandchildren. You can start with either uncooked macaroni, or penne pasta. Start by coloring the pasta with vinegar water and food coloring. String, twine, or embroidery floss. Make necklaces and bracelets.

You can also glue pasta pieces to construction paper to make amazing art.
