Hi,

I am requesting a recipe for her Macaroni and Cheese...I think it included shrimp (?)  I am currently separated from my precious cookbooks...they are in Japan.

I am a Military Wife who went home due to a Family Emergency and am seriously  craving this dish.  I know I could request it from my Hubby, but he is currently serving a tour in Iraq. 

I would appreciate any help...

 

Thanks so much,

Lana Campbell

This is the one I have.  I saw her fix it on some show.  Not sure it's the one you're looking for though. 

Servings: Serves 4 to 6
Ingredients
Over-the-Rainbow Macaroni and Cheese
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 pound elbow macaroni
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) plus 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded Muenster cheese
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded mild Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack
  • 2 cups half-and-half
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) Velveeta , cut into small cubes
  • 2 large eggs , lightly beaten
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Directions
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly butter a deep 2 1/2-quart casserole.

Bring the large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the oil, then the elbow macaroni, and cook until the macaroni is just tender, about 7 minutes. Do not overcook. Drain well. Return to the cooking pot.

In a small saucepan, melt eight tablespoons of the butter. Stir into the macaroni. In a large bowl, mix the Muenster, mild and sharp Cheddar, and Monterey Jack cheeses. To the macaroni, add the half-and-half, 1 1/2 cups of the shredded cheese, the cubed Velveeta, and the eggs. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to the buttered casserole. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup of shredded cheese and dot with the remaining one tablespoon of butter.

Bake until it's bubbling around the edges, about 35 minutes. Serve hot.

Thanks Sally for the recipe.  I will try this one.  I don't know why I think shrimp is included?  Maybe I've got it mixed up with another recipe in the book..

Thanks for your help.
