<IngredientText>Kitchen tools used to make this Lobster Mac and Cheese:
Saucepan to cook the pasta and then make the cheese sauce. I replaced all of my pans this past Christmas with All-Clad and will never go back!
Cheese Grater ? doesn?t freshly grated cheese always taste so much better?
Garlic Press ? I?ve been through a handful of garlic presses in my lifetime and this one works the best
Tablespoon ? I don?t know if it?s the shape of the spoon, but this is a fantastic set that doesn?t spill your ingredients
Whisk ? do you have a good one? You should.
Cocottes ? whether you?re making some baked mac and cheese or individual desserts, every home cook should have a set of mini round cocottes

Lobster Mac and Cheese
Lobster Mac and Cheese, with succulent pieces of wild caught fresh water lobster, is possibly the best macaroni and cheese recipe you&apos;ll find! Now, even though I cheat and use langostino instead of true lobster, once you smother it with the heavenly cheddar gruyere cheese sauce and crisp topping, no one will argue!

<IngredientText>Instructions
Cook the pasta in salted boiling water to al dente doneness. You want them to be cooked but firm since they will continue cooking in the sauce. Drain and set aside.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
While the pasta is cooking, make the cheese sauce. Over medium heat, melt 3 tablespoons of butter with the garlic. Allow to cook for a few minutes until fragrant. Whisk in the flour and allow to cook for several minutes to form a roux.
Add the milk to the roux and whisk well to combine. Bring milk to a simmer and allow to cook for several minutes, continually whisking. It should thicken slightly. Remove from heat and stir in grated cheese, salt and pepper, and nutmeg.
Add lobster meat and cooked pasta to the cheese sauce.
Divide mac and cheese between 6 ramekins or transfer to a baking dish.
Melt remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and combine in a small dish with the breadcrumbs, parmesan, and herbs. Spread evenly over mac and cheese. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
Serve hot.
Recipe Notes
I used a gruyere cheddar blend from Trader Joe&apos;s, but you can also do equal parts of gruyere and cheddar.
Langostino can be used in place of lobster.
