July 7, 2022, is National Macaroni Day. Of course, when it comes to macaroni, the noodle, you can cook it quite a few ways. I love a good tuna mac pasta salad during the summertime. You can pair it with a red sauce and your favorite meat and veggies. Or you can go the route many Americans take and mix up a roux, cover it in cheese and bake that sucker in the oven to get a delicious pan of ooey, gooey mac and cheese. According to National Today,
This little elbow-shaped pasta is such a fan-favorite that it gets its own day of celebration. As it should! Apparently, macaroni is the most common form of pasta in the U.S. So on this day, let’s all come together to show our love for the humble and versatile macaroni.
Today, we'll focus on that. Mac and cheese is one of the best comfort foods, in my humble opinion. I can even make a vegan mac and cheese that will impress the most discerning cheese-lover. It takes a bit of "elbow grease," cheesy puns intended, to make a solid 5-star mac and cheese.
You can even indulge your cravings for macaroni (and cheese or salad) at the 39th Annual Taste of Buffalo this weekend in downtown Buffalo. These 5 restaurants will offer a mac dish on Saturday, July 9, and Sunday, July 10.
