It’s time for meals on Monday, and today’s recipe is a fun Valentine’s dish ( Valentines Day is tomorrow)! If you are not a lobster fan this recipe is terrific with shrimp too. It’s easy to make and doesn’t take much time to prepare either. Enjoy.
What You Need
3/4 to 1 Lb Lobster ( cooked and cut into small pieces)
1 Lb pasta
6 Tbsp unsalted butter (melted)
2 Garlic cloves (finely chopped)
1/4 Scallions (finely chopped tops and bottoms)
1 /4 cup white onion ( finely chopped)
1/4 Cup flour
3 Cups milk
1 1/2 cups Mozzarella cheese (grated)
1 1/2 cups mild cheddar cheese (grated)
1 Tbsp spicy mustard
Salt and pepper (to taste)
Before You Start: Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cool water, set aside. Melt butter ( I just use the microwave and a microwave safe dish takes about 20 seconds.
Lets Make it! Add butter, garlic and white onion to a saucepan and cook over medium heat until onion is softened ( about 5 minutes). Add flour stir with whisk and cook for about one minute. Add milk, whisk together and bring to a boil, whisking often. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer about 3-5 minutes until sauce is smooth and thickened. Remove from heat, and add cheese, scallions, mustard, and salt and pepper. Whisk together. Add lobster and stir with a spoon to combine. Cook on low stirring often ( to heat lobster all the way through) about 3-5 minutes. Garnish with chopped scallions if desired
