This one-pan Thai macaroni is probably unlike any other mac you've had before. This dish is given its bright yellow color not from cheese but from curry paste. Along with mushrooms, onions, coconut milk, cilantro, peanuts, and lemon, this entrée is a mix of pad Thai and classic macaroni and cheese. Talk about delicious fusion.
