PREPARATION
1.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2.
Cook pasta in salted boiling water for 7 minutes, drain and set aside.
3.
Before you cook the lobster meat, add milk to a small sauce pan and place over medium-low heat. Make sure the milk doesn't boil. You will use the hot milk for the cheese sauce.
4.
In a sauté pan, add two tablespoons of butter and place over medium heat. Add shallots and cook for 2 minutes.
5.
Add garlic and lobster meat. Gently stir until lobster has cooked through. The lobster will turn white and firm up a little. It will only take a few minutes for the meat to cook. If you're not sure the lobster meat is cooked through, take the pan off the heat as you don't want to overcook the lobster.
6.
The lobster will finish cooking in the oven. Pour cooked lobster into a bowl and set aside.
7.
To make the roux for the cheese sauce add 4 tablespoons of butter to large pot and place over low heat. Once butter has melted, add flour and whisk for 1 minute.
8.
While whisking, slowly pour in heated milk. Continue to whisk until thickened. This can happen very fast or can take a few minutes.
9.
Once thickened, remove from heat. Add salt and pepper.
10.
Add cheese to the roux and stir until melted.
11.
Lastly add cooked pasta and lobster to the cheese sauce, mix, and pour into an 8x8 baking dish.
12.
Sprinkle with bread crumbs and bake in oven for 20 minutes. If bread crumbs have not browned, turn on the broiler and broil for about 5 minutes or until bread crumbs are golden brown. Serve immediately.
