Add the macaroni to the sauce, along with the pasta water, and stir until even. Tip this straight into a wide, shallow oven dish, using a flexible spatula to get to all the sauce.

Elizabeth Ann Williams-Wynne & bigamous marriage to Elizabeth Ann's younger sister, Bethena Charlotte Williams [1] Meanwhile, in a separate saucepan, heat the butter until melted, then whisk in the flour until smooth and cook for 1-2 minutes, or until pale golden-brown. After a time in Constantinople helping the Turks fight the Russians, he returned to London in 1831 and joined forces with Gurney's former employee, carpenter John Squire. In 1833, the two had constructed their own steam carriage. It was a straightforward vehicle that carried up to fourteen passengers, developed 30 horsepower (22kW) at 14mph (23km/h) and ascended hills with ease. The carriage ran for hire for some weeks between Paddington and Edgware with no serious mechanical problems and in 1834, after a new toll relief bill was passed by the House of Commons, Maceroni built a new and larger carriage. But the bill failed in the House of Lords and Maceroni fell into financial difficulties. To meet the terms of the Belgian and French patents he had negotiated earlier, he shipped his two remaining carriages to Brussels and Paris in the care of the Italian speculator Colonel d'Asda. D'Asda drove the carriages around to great publicity for several months then sold them and disappeared with the money. In 1835, Maceroni published a book on road steam power and tried to raise new capital, but a railway investment panic in 1837 doomed his chances and in 1841 the disclosure of serious mismanagement ended with the seizure of all his assets.

In the United States, federal regulations define three different shapes of dried pasta, such as spaghetti, as a "macaroni product". [4] Etymology [ edit ] Drain the cooked pasta and tip it into the pan containing the cheese sauce. Stir well to coat the pasta. Set aside. The word "macaroni" is often used synonymously with elbow-shaped macaroni, as it is the variety most often used in macaroni and cheese recipes. [3] In Italy and other countries, the noun maccheroni can refer to straight, tubular, square-ended pasta corta ("short-length pasta") or to long pasta dishes, as in maccheroni alla chitarra and frittata di maccheroni, which are prepared with long pasta like spaghetti. In Italian, maccheroni refers to elongated pasta, not necessarily in tubular form. [5] This general meaning is still retained outside Rome and in different languages which borrowed the word.Beeton, Isabella; Mary), Mrs Beeton (Isabella (27 January 2018).

In 1825 while living in Manchester, he became interested in the work of Sir Goldsworthy Gurney and attached himself to Gurney's Regent's Park workshop on the recommendation of Sir Anthony Carlisle, ostensibly to work on his own inventions. He stayed six months and became involved enough in Gurney's work – he witnessed one of the early carriage contracts – that he persuaded several friends to invest in the enterprise. Melt the extra butter and mix it with the extra cheese and the breadcrumbs. Sprinkle this mix over the macaroni cheese. Transfer the macaroni cheese to a large ovenproof dish and top with the chopped mozzarella, breadcrumbs, and Parmesan. Grill for 2-3 minutes, or until the topping is golden-brown and bubbling.

Maceroni" was the original version of his family name, the variant spelling of Macirone having been adopted by his grandfather to distance himself from an unsavoury relation. Francis opted to resume the original spelling, but is sometimes listed with the variant spelling. [3] Early life [ edit ] As is the case with dishes made with other types of pasta, macaroni and cheese is a popular dish and is often made with elbow macaroni. The same dish, known simply as macaroni cheese, is also found in Great Britain, where it originated. [ dubious – discuss] [21] [22] In Great Britain, particularly Scotland, macaroni cheese is a popular filling for pies, often consumed as a takeaway food or at football grounds. [23] A sweet macaroni, known as macaroni pudding, containing milk and sugar (and rather similar to a rice pudding) was also popular with the British during the Victorian era. [24] A popular canned variety is still manufactured by Ambrosia and sold in UK supermarkets. [25] Dry-fry the chopped pancetta in a frying pan over a high heat until golden-brown and crisp. Stir it into the macaroni cheese mixture. Colonel Francis Maceroni (sometimes known as "Count Maceroni"), born Francis Macirone (1788–1846), was a soldier, diplomat, revolutionary, balloonist (as recorded by Sophie Blanchard), author and inventor. [2] Project for armed unions: foot-lancer system recommended for volunteer corps throughout the country, London: 1831.Born in 1788 the son of Peter Augustus Macirone ( Pietro Bonaventura Augusto Macirone), an Italian merchant and former school teacher living in England, Maceroni was sent in 1803, aged fifteen, to live in Rome with one of his uncles, Giorgio, who was then Post-Master General to Pius VII. [4] On his father's wishes, Maceroni was there apprenticed in the counting-house of the Torlonia banking family. Being clearly unsuited to copying and book-keeping work however, he was soon more usefully employed by Torlonia in dealing with the many English-speaking visitors to Rome, who sought the banker's services. [5] In 1804, in the company of the architect Robert Smirke, who was then conducting a Grand Tour, Maceroni made the journey on foot, and over several days, from Tivoli to Naples, along the mountain paths of the Apennines and passing through Palestrina, Cori, Arpino and Monte Cassino before descending to Capua and Naples; Smirke having taken many sketches of the classical remains that had come across along their route. [6] At the monastery of Monte Cassino, they saw on display a huge thigh-bone purportedly of St. Christopher, but which both Maceroni and Smirke suspected to be that of an elephant or mammoth. [7] However, the Italian linguist G. Alessio argues that the word can have two origins. The first is the Medieval Greek μακαρώνεια ( makarṓneia) " dirge" (stated in sec. XIII by James of Bulgaria), which would mean "funeral meal" and then "food to serve" during this office (see modern Eastern Thrace's μαχαρωνιά ( makharōniá) – macharōnia in the sense of "rice-based dish served at the funeral"), in which case, the term would be composed of the double root of μακάριος ( makários) "blessed" and αἰωνίως ( aiōníōs) "eternally". [18] The second is the Greek μακαρία ( makaría) "barley broth", which would have added the suffix -one. [19]

The word first appears in English as makerouns in the 1390 The Forme of Cury, which records the earliest recipe for macaroni and cheese. [20] The word later came to be applied to overdressed dandies and was associated with foppish Italian fashions of dress and periwigs, as in the eighteenth-century British song " Yankee Doodle". Maceroni became a Colonel of Cavalry and served as aide de camp to Joachim Murat, the King of Naples during the Napoleonic Wars (later writing his biography) [8] and fought with the Spanish insurgents in 1822-23 during the Trienio Liberal.

Maccheroni comes from Italian maccheroni [makkeˈroːni], plural form of maccherone. The term derives from the ancient Greek "Macaria". The academic consensus supports that the word is derived from the Greek μακαρία ( makaría), [6] a kind of barley broth which was served to commemorate the dead. [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] In turn, that comes from μάκαρες ( mákares) meaning the "blessed ones, blessed dead", the plural of μάκαρ ( mákar) which means "blessed, happy"; μακάριος ( makários, from μάκαρ (mákar) + -ιος (- ios, adjective suffix)) and Μακάριος ( Makários) " Makarios (Latinized form: Macarius") are derived terms. [16] [17] The many varieties sometimes differ from each other because of the texture of each pasta: rigatoni and tortiglioni, for example, have ridges down their lengths, while chifferi, lumache, lumaconi, pipe, pipette, etc. refer to elbow-shaped pasta similar to macaroni in North American culture.
