Super cheesy and super gooey! A smooth creamy blend of Swiss and sharp Cheddar with the sweetness of lobster. Side dish for many, or a main course for about 10 people, give or take. A great guilty pleasure!

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook cavatappi in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain.

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir in flour until a paste forms, about 2 minutes. Stir in heavy cream slowly; cook until heated through, 3 to 5 minutes. Add 1 package Swiss cheese and 1 package Cheddar cheese; stir until melted, about 2 minutes. Season sauce with nutmeg, salt, and pepper.

  • Combine cooked pasta, sauce, lobster, and lobster cooking liquid in a large bowl. Stir in half of the remaining Swiss cheese and Cheddar cheese. Transfer to a 9x13-inch baking dish. Sprinkle remaining Swiss cheese and Cheddar cheese on top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cheeses are melted and bubbly, 20 to 30 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

I buy my lobster frozen in a 12-ounce package that is mostly claws but already shelled and ready to go.

Tips

Substitute elbow pasta for the cavatappi if desired.

Definitely will make it again. However I misread the cheese amounts and used 2/3rds the amount of cheese and it still came out terrific.. I did top the mixture with some coarsely crushed famous brand buttery crackers. Next time I plan on addding some "OLD BAY" seasoning to zip it up a little (for my taste.) Read More
