Trinidad Macaroni Pie (recipe)

Trinidad Macaroni Pie

Trinidad Macaroni Pie. I had often wondered if there is such a thing in a definitive sense, however I have gotten so many hits with that as a search term that I now have to believe that there is. Coupled with the fact that my Jamaican mother does not make this dish more than once a leap year (and when she does she does in a -very- different manner) and I have to believe that Trinidad Macaroni pie is indeed not universal in nature.

This dish is a stereotypical part of the traditional Trinidadian Sunday lunch and is also offered in cubed form at BBQs and other casual outdoor functions. Feel free to play around with the proportions. A sprinkling of parsley on top after it comes out of the oven, though not traditional, adds a dash of colour and enough appearance of ‘nutrition’ to soothe any guilt you may have over the comforting (but over the top) fatty starchy content :lol:

    Sarina -

    I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed this recipe. I tweeked a little with my husband’s help from his memories of growing up in Trinidad. Once it was finished the smile on my husband’s face was well worth the time and effort to research his homeland food. I will be trying out some of your other recipes real soon. The Macaroni Pie is a favorite of our friends and family. Thank you so much!

    I do not eat eggs, so therefore I make an eggless macaroni pie without onions and pepper it is quite delicious. A sauce is made for it if you desire pepper or something spicy.
