Polish Macaroni and cheese with strawberries {Makaron z serem i z truskawkami}

Polish macaroni and cheese with strawberries is a dish that comes alive every year during strawberry season. Farmer’s market stalls fill up with this ripe, plump and juicy red fruit and people go nuts for them. Strawberry season will only last a couple of moths (if we’re lucky) and we won’t see them again until next year in Poland. To make sure we get the most out of strawberry season we’ll make sure to eat them by the pound. We’ll put them into cheese-cake, make it into strawberry soup, coffee cake or boil them with sugar and drink as juice. 

Makaron z serem i z truskawkami [mah-kah-rohn z seh-rehm ee z troo-skah-vkah-mee] is a dish of hot spiral-shaped pasta garnished with tangy and cold farmer’s cheese and covered with fresh and juicy strawberries. A bit of sugar and sour cream brings a bit of sweet and creamy balance for a complete and filling dinner… I imagine this is not what you expected when you saw the dish name 🙂 This is macaroni and cheese, Polish style.
