Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and adjust racks to the middle. Grease a 13 by 9-inch baking dish with butter.

In a large pot of boiling salted water over medium heat, add the pasta and cook until al dente. Drain the pasta and reserve.

Add 4 tablespoons butter to a large pot over medium heat. Once the butter shimmers, add the shallots and garlic and saute until translucent. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add the tomato paste and flour and stir to toast, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add the white wine and reduce, by half, about 2 minutes. Slowly add the cream, whisking well to remove any lumps. Add the paprika, cayenne, and bay leaf. Bring the cream up to a simmer and turn the heat to low. Let reduce until the cream is thick and can coat a spoon, about 5 to 10 minutes. When thickened, remove the bay leaves.

Stir in the grated cheeses, a handful at a time, combining well after each addition. Add the chopped lobster meat to the sauce and stir well. Add the pasta and stir. Add to the greased baking dish and sprinkle with the panko crumbs and parsley. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and let rest for 10 minutes before serving. Sprinkle individual servings with parsley.

    I got roped into making something for my family's Memorial Day BBQ and I was having a tough time finding a dish that I could get excited about cooking and would also be tasty. So I settled on mac n' cheese because it is truly my favorite comfort food... I've attempted it before with varying degrees of success, but found I was never able to achieve that homerun, cheesy-goodness that you want from a good mac n' cheese. Well, when I saw this recipe I decided I had to try it as it is a marriage of my two favorite foods (seafood & mac n' cheese... Suffice it to say, this recipe did not dissapoint. I was fortunate enough to find an amazing aged English cheddar that really sent the mac through the roof! It wasn't too labor intensive either which was great. So thanks to the Neelys for making my family gathering a bit more special, it was a hit, everyone loved it, it was delicious!
