I may have to get you to sign a waiver before you make this Seafood Mac ‘N Cheese! It is soooo delicious you will be tempted to overeat!
This recipe is so simple anyone can make. It is simple enough to be comfort food and elegant enough to serve to company.
I served it with these Lemon Dill Rolls and the combination was a pairing made in heaven! I served it with a Touraine Muscadet Sevre et Maine. Any dry white wine would work- an unoaked Chardonnay, Chablis, Sancerre.
It reheats beautifully as long as you are gentle with it.
I used large cooked shrimp already peeled and deveined. I added them frozen to the Mac ‘N Cheese mixture just before going into the oven. That kept them from getting over cooked and rubbery. If you are using raw shrimp then you should thaw them and stir them in just before baking.
The scallops should be the small bay scallops. They are the right size to go well with the size of the macaronis.
You can make this ahead in the morning and then reheat in the oven when ready to serve. You can also freeze it and reheat from frozen.
Garnish with fresh dill when you serve. This Mac ‘N Cheese goes great with these Lemon Dill Rolls!
