Mac ‘n’ cheese can be as easy and simple, or as complex and tantalizing, as you want it to be, and many a child has thrived on a steady diet of the hot casserole.
This pasta recipe is very quick and easy to prepare, and it’s also a very popular recipe for kids! Mac and Cheese is not a traditional Mexican recipe, but it has somehow been adopted in many Mexican homes and is a favorite at children’s parties and other types of celebrations. I think that maybe someone, many years ago, was trying to imitate the popular American dish and lacked yellow cheddar cheese, and decided to add the red bell pepper instead to give color to the pasta. At least, that’s my theory about why this recipe is prepared the way it is.
EASY AND QUICK MEXICAN STYLE MAC & CHEESE
As many of you may know, American meals have a significant influence on the border states of Mexico, in the same way, that you find Mexican dishes being adopted in the United States, like in Texas and Arizona, where you find that burritos or chimichangas are an everyday kind of thing for some. This pasta dish is one of the American dishes that has made its way into Mexican homes; I grew up in a state bordering the US, and this way of preparing pasta has been around since I was a kid. It also made with other types of pastas, like spaghetti or penne.
I often shop at Wal-Mart, and I was very surprised to see La Moderna brand pasta boxes alongside the other premium pasta brands since they’re usually placed in the Latin food section. And let me tell you, I’m so glad that they finally have the place they deserve; this brand has been around for ages in my country, and it has a lot of prestige due to the quality of their products, besides being a high protein pasta.
Enjoy the recipe!
