A very slightly altered recipe from Baked in Maine recipe blog. Well, okay she never even mentioned crawfish. Remember to have your cheese at room temperature to prevent graininess. One more thing, wouldn't this be just divine served in individual ramkins for a special occasion?

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a large casserole dish.
  2. Meanwhile, in large saucepan, to make the roux, melt 6 tablespoons of butter, whisk in the flour. Cook over low heat for 2 minutes, stirring quickly with a whisk.
  3. Still whisking, add the milk, lobster juice, and cook for a minute or two more, until thick and smooth. Turn the heat to low, whisk in all of the cheese, salt and pepper to taste and nutmeg or cayenne. Add the cooked/drained pasta and lobster meat and mix well. Place in the casserole dish.
  4. Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter, combine with the fresh bread crumbs, and sprinkle on the top. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until the sauce is bubbly and brown. Top with fresh parsley or cilantro.
