After just making some delicious mac and cheese i looked down at the bowl and couldnt help but wonder how exactly the name mac and cheese came to be. I get the whole cheese part obviously but what exactly is the mac and how did it get involved with the cheese...? Can anyone help me out here!

ya no worries. go look in your food pantry...im sure youll find many noodles with strange names....such as:

Spaghetti, linguine, fettuccine, tortellini, ziti, rigatoni, etc. just note that these are all italian noodles. (:

Haha this made me laugh, just because I've wondered the same thing. My grandma thought I was literally retarded.

I read that and figured out that mac is like the sound you make when you eat it, and you mac on the cheese, so the box is telling you that you will mac, and there is cheese in here, so it's called "mac and cheese"........but i guess those other answers make more sense...
