Florida Spiny Lobster Tomato Mac & Cheese

Ingredients

1 pound Florida spiny lobster, cooked and cut into medium sized chunks
3 large Florida tomatoes, sliced
1 pound pasta (your favorite shape) cooked
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 large garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup red onion, chopped fine
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 cups milk, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups sharp Cheddar cheese, grated (or your favorite)
1 1/2 cups grated Gruyere cheese, grated (or your favorite)
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 cup fresh chives, chopped fine
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 cup panko bread crumbs
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup flat leaf parsley, chopped fine
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste

Preparation

Cook pasta until al dente according to package directions. Drain and set aside. Place 4 tablespoons melted butter in a saucepot over medium-low heat, add garlic and onion and cook until onion is translucent. Next, whisk in flour and cook flour for several minutes. Carefully pour in milk and bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking constantly. Continue to cook and whisk until sauce is smooth and thick enough to coat a spoon. Remove sauce from heat and slowly whisk in cheese, a handful at a time. Season cheese sauce with Dijon, chives, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper, to taste. In a large mixing bowl combine cheese sauce and cooked pasta then fold in chopped lobster. Lightly spray a baking dish with pan release spray. Pour pasta mixture into baking dish. Arrange sliced tomatoes on top of the pasta mixture. In a small bowl combine panko bread crumbs, olive oil and parsley and sprinkle over the tomatoes. Bake the lobster-tomato mac & cheese in a preheated 375 degree oven for about 10 to 20 minutes or until topping is crisp and cheese sauce is bubbly. Let cool slightly before serving.
