Description

Scale

Ingredients

1 pound cavatappi pasta

½ cup butter

½ cup flour

2 tablespoons dry sherry

3 cups milk

1 cup heavy cream

2 cups white cheddar cheese, grated

2 cups sharp cheddar, grated

2 cups fontina cheese, grated or Gruyere

⅓ cup grated parmesan cheese

1 teaspoon Old Bay

½ teaspoon nutmeg

½ teaspoon black pepper

Langostino lobster tails (can use shrimp, chopped up too)

1 ½ cups panko breadcrumbs

¼ cup butter

3 anchovies, chopped


Instructions

Preheat the oven to 400°F

Cook the pasta in well-salted boiling water, according to package directions; about 7 minutes.

Drain and set aside.

In a large sauce pan, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Add the flour, and whisk over low

heat for 2 minutes; this cooks out the raw flour taste. Add the dry sherry, milk, and heavy

cream, and continue whisking until thickened and smooth. Remove from the heat; and add the

white cheddar cheese, sharp cheddar cheese, fontina cheese, and parmesan cheese; whisking to

incorporate. Add the Old Bay, nutmeg, black pepper; then taste and add kosher salt.

Add the sharp cheddar, Comte and parmesan cheeses, one handful at a time, whisking to

incorporate. When one handful is melted, add the next. Add the cooked pasta and langostino

lobster and combine. Place the mixture in a buttered baking dish.

Melt the ¼ cup butter in a saute pan, add the anchovies and cook until they crisp a little. Pour in

the panko and saute until lightly browned. Sprinkle over the mac and cheese and back for 30

minutes or until it’s bubbly and browned on top.
