Macaroni Fish Pie

This recipe came about whilst I was putting my shopping away and mentally ticking off what each item was for, and yes, I had the fish mix in one hand and the pkt of macaroni in the other and my thoughts collided "Macaroni Fish Pie " I immediately dismissed it as me being daft, but I mentioned it on the fb page and a lovely lady told me it was a thing! So of course I had to try it....and I have to admit I was blown away by it. Its creamy,rich and very filling.As I was writing it out I realised I didn't have mashed potatoes which is my usual go to topping,so added another twist and I topped it with what I did have-Frozen Roast Potatoes. This recipe is really so versatile you can tailor it to suit you and your families tastes. If you don't want to include the macaroni just leave that out or switch it for any pasta mix you do have. Why not give this a try and let us know how you got on in the comments below. We love to hear your feedback x
