We are big pasta eaters at our house!  My husband LOVES any type of pasta, and my son is the biggest mac & cheese lover out there!  I love pasta as well, so when it comes to dinner ideas, noodles are always at the top of my list!

A creamy, delicious three-cheese sauce makes this Lobster Mac & Cheese absolutely incredible!  Gruyere, white cheddar and American cheeses melt together wonderfully, and coat the pasta and lobster giving you a creamy, flavorful dish.

Over the last several months, lobster has come down in price greatly.  You can find it in most freezer sections of the grocery store, and can even get it pre-cooked, shelled and ready to use.  You’ll likely pay a premium for the pre-shelled lobster, but it does save a fair amount of time in prep.  On the other hand, you can usually get a good deal on lobster tails – simply cook, cool and remove from the shells before adding to the pasta.
