Macaroni Cheese has been around since the Medieval period, making an appearance in one of the oldest known French cook books 'Liber de Coquina'. The dish was also found in England, with the recipe consisting of macaroni pasta sandwiched between melted butter and cheese. At the time, it was considered a high society dish, and was still very fashionable in the 18th century, particularly in Paris. It was at this time that the American, Thomas Jefferson, visited the French capital, and was so fond of the dish that he brought the recipe home with him. 'Mac and Cheese' as it is known in America is now hugely popular dish. In this recipe I have added a few veggies to help towards our five a day. Based on the the brands I used, each helping is about 314 calories.
