Shrimp “Mac” and Cheese

 

I came up with a delightful lunch yesterday.  Both I and my husband liked it so much!  He admitted, he had his doubts it would be like classic Mac and Cheese when he saw what I was throwing into the pan, but he had to admit it came out very tasty and quite like Mac and Cheese, just with the shrimp flavor melded into it.  This creation is definitely Induction friendly. 🙂
