Ooey-gooey cheesy goodness is what this recipe is made of! Delicious lobster pairs with pasta and five types of cheese to make this creamy dish.
I’ve got a bit of a weakness when I visit seafood restaurants: Lobster Mac & Cheese. To be honest, I love lobster in just about any form, but I’ve got a soft spot for this cheesy dish.
Valentine’s Day was this past Sunday, and Andrew and I decided to cook a special meal at home rather than fight the crowds at a restaurant. We had ribeye for our main dish and I made this Lobster Mac for a side.
This creamy pasta dish is topped with panko bread crumbs and then baked to give it a crunchy finish. I always love the contrast that baked pasta dishes provide with the saucey pasta and crispy topping.
Lobster Mac & Cheese is perfect for a date night or other special meal! It’s a dish that is sure to impress your guests.
Don’t be afraid to make too much of this dish! It heated up wonderfully the next day. I enjoyed it for my lunch and was glad to have one last taste before it was gone.
- 1 lb pasta I used fusilli
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 4 oz cream cheese
- 2 cups guyére cheese shredded
- 2 cups of Trader Joe's Quattro Formaggio shredded cheese if you can't find this, it's a blend of parmesan, asiago, fontina and mild provolone
- 1 cup lobster meat
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
Preheat the oven to 350 F and grease a baking dish.
Cook the pasta according to the directions on the package. Drain and set aside.
Place the heavy cream and cream cheese in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. As soon as it begins to boil, lower the heat and whisk in all of the cheese, a little at a time. Whisk until combined (the cheese mixture will be thick).
Heat the olive oil in a skillet on medium high. Cook the lobster and garlic together for a 2-3 minutes.
Combine the pasta, cheese mixture and lobster in the baking dish. Mix well so that the pasta is completely coated with cheese.
Sprinkle the panko over the mac and cheese. Bake for 30 minutes.
