Bacon Lobster Mac and Cheese

For some people this recipe may come as a shock. Well... coming from me it's a shock. I am not a huge pasta fan, however, I tried some lobster mac and cheese and it was amazing! So, I decided to make my own version of mac and cheese. I like this mac and cheese because it's not the "fake, gross cheese" mac and cheese if that makes any sense… This recipe makes more then what you would think {I had tons of mac and cheese, and more than what I wanted}, I would recommend making half of the recipe unless you're having a dinner party.

What you'll need:

  • 1 lb. large elbow macaroni
  • 1 c. bacon bits
  • 1 pkg. lobster
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 2 tbsp. flour
  • 2 c. milk
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1 1/2 8 oz. bags sharp cheddar cheese - shredded
  • 1 c. colby Jack cheese - shredded
  • 1 c. mozzarella cheese - shredded
  • 6 slices of provolone cheese

Combine the pasta and cheese sauce. Toss the pasta in the cheese sauce to coat completely. Scoop half of the pasta with the cheese sauce into the prepared greased dish. Sprinkle with an overflowing cup of the bacon, cheese, lobster mixture. Repeat layering until the pasta and bacon, lobster, cheese mixture have been used.
