Lobster Mac & Cheese

Author Jacqueline


  • 4 T butter
  • 4 T flour
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup shredded parmesan
  • 1/2 cup shredded white cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded Gruyere cheese
  • 3/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 T chopped chives
  • 1/4 cup panko
  • 1 tsp prepared pesto
  • 12 oz lobster meat chopped (1/2 into small to medium chunks, 1/2 left in large chunks)
  • 12 oz short pasta I used casarecce, gemelli or ziti would work well


  • Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  • In a large saucepot, melt the butter over medium heat. Whisk in the flour and cook for 1-2 minutes.
  • Slowly whisk in the milk; bring to a simmer. Reduce heat and simmer until the milk mixture begins to thicken.
  • Add in the cheeses one handful at a time, whisking to combine, and not adding any additional cheese until the previous handful is fully incorporated.
  • Stir in the garlic powder, chives and lobster meat and allow to cook in the sauce, 4-5 minutes.
  • Pour the cooked pasta into the cheese sauce, stir to combine. Remove from heat.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the panko breadcrumbs and the pesto, until the breadcrumbs are evenly coated.
  • Divide the pasta between plates (or pour into serving dish) and top with breadcrumbs. Serve immediately.
