“I’m always trying to find interesting ways to play up mac and cheese,” says Carron Harris, Senior Director, Culinary, Papa Murphy’s Pizza. Describing this recipe as “a marriage of Thai and Italian mashed into one all-American dish,” Harris uses a red curry sauce—with the addition of cheddar cheese—as the base flavor for an inventive mac and cheese build using Barilla Frozen® Elbow Macaroni. She acknowledges that cheese is not a big part of Thai cuisine and “that it is typically not Italian to mix cheese and seafood,” she says. “But I do love the shrimp with the Thai curry sauce, and introducing these flavors in the mac and cheese format might make them more approachable to less-adventurous eaters.”
