Not really. I'm sure Mac and cheese is an off shoot of kaesespaetzle and spaetzle has been documented to have been around for a very, very long time.Mac n cheese is really a murican thing, IMO, I would never try this recipe, just too many steps and ingredients. However I would eat it if someone cooked it for me. I make a macaroni dessert, prolly my fave dessert. 5 ingredients.
Not knocking it Craig, just not my cup of tea.
