Ingredients

  • 7 Tbsp Butter
  • 1 Clove Garlic minced
  • 1/2 Medium onion finely chopped
  • 1/3 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 Cup Heavy Cream
  • 1-1/2 Cup Milk
  • Course Salt
  • Ground Pepper
  • 1 lb. Coarsely chopped cooked lobster
  • 4-1/2 Cups mixed grated cheeses such as Cheddar, Swiss, or Parmesean
  • 1 Cup Panko breadcrumbs

Instructions

  1. Preheat over to 400.
  2. Cook macaroni about 1 minute less than the directions call for. Drain, rinse with cold water, and set aside.
  3. While pasta is cooking, melt butter over medium heat in a large saucepan. Remove 3 tablespoons of melted butter to a bowl; set aside. Add onion and garlic; cook until browned. Add flour; cook 1 minute while stirring. Add heavy cream and milk; whisk until smooth. Bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer; cook until sauce has thickened, about 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.
  4. Remove from heat. Fold in cheese, lobster, and macaroni. Place in shallow 4-quart baking dish. To bowl of butter, stir in breadcrumbs; sprinkle over macaroni. Bake uncovered until topping is golden, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes before serving.
