This macaroni and cheese takes on a subtle coastal flair with the addition of shrimp. I used cooked salad shrimp as I found the size comparable to the elbow macaroni.

  • Pour 5 cups water into a saucepan. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Add macaroni and boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour until a smooth paste is formed. Slowly pour in milk, stirring to incorporate. Add 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese, sour cream, and Cajun seasoning. Drain macaroni and stir into the sauce. Add frozen shrimp and stir to combine.

  • Pour macaroni mixture into an oval au gratin dish. Top with panko bread crumbs and 2 tablespoons Cheddar cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bubbly and golden, about 20 minutes.

Delicious! I included some swiss cheese with the cheddar because I had it. I tripled this recipe (1 1/2 cups dry macaroni) and baked it 35 minutes. Used raw thawed shrimp. It did need more salt, but that was added at the table. Read More
