Happy Birthday Mr. Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson, the third United States president was born on April 13, 1743. On March 21st , 1938 President Roosevelt designated Jefferson's birthday to be celebrated each April 13th. On April 11th, 2007 President George W. Bush proclaimed that Aperil 13th be known as Thomas Jefferson Day. 

This being a food blog I thought I would share with you that one of Thomas Jefferson's favorite foods was Parmesan cheese. This mac n cheese recipe I share with you as a tribute to Thomas Jefferson. 

2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp oil
3 tbsp flour
2 cups of milk (for thinning)
1 cup of cheese
⅓ of Parmesan cheese (grated)
1 pound of pasta noodles
salt and pepper to taste

Place a pot of salted water on to boil for pasta.
When water comes to boil add in pasta until just al dente.
Drain pasta from water and set aside.
To make the roux: Equal parts butter and/or oil and flour to make a roux.
Let the roux cook for 1-2 min to cook out raw flour taste. Slowly whisk in milk to avoid any lumps.
Once you have the mixture to desired thickness add in cheese.
Gently fold in pasta to the sauce and place in oven safe dish and cook at 400 degrees until golden on top and bubbly.
