Seafood Mac and Cheese

I don't have a picture of this, but I promise, it is delicious!!

  • 2 cups Velveeta Cheese
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 1/2 cup chopped red and green peppers
  • Any Seafood Desired (I used 1 small can of crabmeat (from the Tuna aisle), 2 steamed tilapia fillets, and 1 packet of precooked salad shrimp)
  • 1 box medium pasta shells
  • Italian bread crumbs
  • 4 tbsp Butter

  1. Combine the cheese, milk, cayenne pepper, paprika, red and green peppers and seafood together in a saucepan on medium heat.  Stir often to keep the cheese from burning.
  2. Boil pasta according to the package directions, and drain.
  3. Combine pasta and cheese sauce together, and pour into a greased square casserole dish. (you can butter the dish or just use cooking spray).
  4. Sprinkle bread crumbs to cover the top.
  5. Cut the butter into small slices and evenly place over the top.
  6. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until the bread crumbs are crispy and golden brown.
My review:  This is delicious and oh so rich and satifying.  All I did was make my seafood cheese fondue recipe and added pasta and breadcrumbs.  Delicious!!
