Recipe Notes

While this version of the recipe is pretty traditional, my mind is turning on how many other ways I could make this traditional caribbean macaroni pie. I’d love to try using different type of cheese such as feta, or even a pepperjack to make it a little spicy! I also think introducing spinach would be really good. Or possibly putting a meat, like ham, into this dish? Yes please!
