Gooey Lobster Mac and Cheese

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"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!"

  1. 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.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  • Substitute elbow pasta for the cavatappi if desired.
