Ok, this eggless macaroni pie recipe is for my vegetarian/ rastafarian readers: perhaps I could safely say it is macaroni pie gone “ital“. LOL! Anyway, I felt I wasn’t doing enough to cater to my vegetarian readers, so I decided to post this eggless macaroni pie recipe.
A Sunday Eggless Macaroni Pie
Macaroni pie is truly a staple in trini cooking, especially on Sundays. In fact, in my very first attempt at cooking on my own, I made a macaroni pie. It came out wonderful: nice and golden with a little crispiness at the top. Of course this was because I grated a little extra cheese ( I just love cheese!!) … Oh! and from day one I was experimenting, because I remember adding some slices of sausage on top of the cheese which wasn’t really an ingredient in the recipe….. So you see this macaroni dish is special to me.
Now we come to this variation of our famous trini macaroni pie. Eggless macaroni pie is just as simple as the ordinary macaroni pie we make in Trinidad. The only difference is that to bind the macaroni we’ll use a thick sauce. To make it even thicker and more effective, we will also add extra cheese ( more cheese yummy!). The sauce is the same white sauce we usually make for lasagna, lasagna rolls, yam pie etc. It’s simple and easy to follow.
Well, let’s begin. Shall we? Enough of me talking. Here’s eggless macaroni pie: made especially for my vegetarian readers and rastafarian brethren. Enjoy!
