Seafood Macaroni and Cheese

McCormick and Schmick's Recipe

Serves 4

Cheese Sauce
1/3 cup diced yellow onions
6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) butter
2/3 cup flour
3/4 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup whole milk
pinch of salt
pinch of freshly ground black pepper
pinch of nutmeg
pinch of dry mustard
1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese

8 ounces quartered mushrooms
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
8 ounces small shrimp
8 ounces bay scallops
4 cups cooked elbow macaroni (about 1 3/4 cups raw)
pinch of salt
pinch of pepper
3 tablespoons chopped chives
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

To Make Cheese Sauce: Saute onion in 6 tablespoons butter until soft. Add flour slowly while stirring to make roux. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes over medium heat. While stirring constantly, add cream and milk. Add seasonings and cheese, and simmer over low heat until thickened and smooth. If a more refined sauce is desired, you may strain it.

To Make Macaroni: Saute mushrooms in 1/4 cup butter until lightly browned. Add shrimp and scallops and saute 1 to 2 minutes. Add cooked macaroni and stir. Add cheese sauce and blend thoroughly. Season with salt, pepper and chives. Place mixture in a casserole dish. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese. Brown lightly under the broiler before serving.
