The Washington Post has recently had a number of macaroni and cheese articles, culminating in the infographic below, illustrated by Laura Stanton. All the various permutations of the classic Mac N Cheese are derived from this recipe.
The infographic shows that you need not focus on only the elbow macaroni…there are many other types that make for a fabulous dish…cavatappi cellentani anyone?
Lest you think cheddar is the only type of cheese to use…move over and make room for some gruyere, or gouda, maybe even a little feta!
Toppings, proteins, seasonings…the list is endless. Have some fun with your mac and cheese!
