Seafood Mac and Cheese

Print Friendly and PDF

This mac and cheese is a fantastic one-dish meal — it’s so rich and creamy and cheesy, all you’ll need is a simple green salad to serve alongside, and your menu is set. Lobster works well in this recipe, but if that seems too luxurious, use any combination of seafood you like.

Since it’s gotten so many positive reviews, this has now become my go-to macaroni recipe!
