Hello People…it’s with great humbleness, I present to you, Shrimp Mac and Cheese. Just kidding….this Shrimp Mac and Cheese is, da bomb! Yes…I promise you…when you make it, you want ever, I mean ever…want to make another mac and cheese recipe again!
Let me take a moment to explain what I mean…first off, I must take a moment to thank my foodie friend, Marc Hurwitz, founder and owner of Boston’s Hidden Restaurants. Marc, like myself loves great food, and this is when the vision was born…Exhibit A!
Marc posted the above picture on Facebook of Lobster Mac and Cheese. And you know what that meant people, it was time for me to create food goodness!
First, start off with boiled cavatappi pasta cooked about 2 minutes less than al dente.
Secondly, mix up my wonderful seasoning blend, you know the drill, creole seasoning, paprika, black pepper, onion and garlic powder and a pinch of cayenne pepper.
After sauteing veggies in olive oil, I add the seasoned shrimp instead of lobster, and cook for a few minutes, remember the shrimp will finish cooking in the oven.
Lastly, we mix up the cream sauce, toss in the pasta and shrimp, veggie mixture and it’s time to bake our glorious mac and cheese.
Prior to baking, top with extra cheese and our butter, parley, and panko bread crumbs.
Hot out the oven, baked for about 20 minutes and broiled for a few minutes more.
Look at this…I am truly speechless…and the taste…just think…food love….
I know you want a bite…well people, get to cooking, so you can start eating!
