Lobster mac and cheese. Ooo-ey gooey deliciousness. And we ate almost the whole tray full.
It was a simple meal. Lobster macaroni and cheese and baked acorn squash. There were only four of us eating.
I have always made this as a side dish, never as a meal by itself. Wow. Just concentrating on the flavors in the dish was a treat in itself. No turkey, ham, chicken, whatever, to get in the way.
For those of you so inclined, here is my recipe. I made one tweak when I could not find the lobster pieces I used to purchase. I bought Lobster Classic and we all thought it was great.
8 ounces penne or other tube-shaped pasta
4 cups milk
4 Tbsp unsalted butter
6 Tbsp flour
1 tsp paprika
1/8 tsp cayenne
salt and pepper to taste
12 ounces grated Gruyere cheese
5.2 ounces garlic and herb Boursin cheese
1 lb cooked lobster meat, chopped
