I am hoping to eat at Thai Aree this weekend. I am a Thai newbie though and have no idea what to order. My experience is limited to Pad Thai and the Tiger Cries from Siam Rice I just enjoyed last week.
This pasta pie is a fun riff on mac and cheese. Food & Wine’s Justin Chapple use three types of cheese here: Fontina and cheddar, which melt beautifully, as well as Parmigiano-Reggiano to create the crispest edges.
Think of this as a lighter, fresher take on chicken Parmesan: We ditch the breading on the poultry and let juicy cherry tomatoes stand in for jarred pasta sauce. A little grated carrot adds just enough sweetness to round out the acidity.
