Staycation means a little extra time in the kitchen, unless said cook spends the day running errands. This is fancy quick meal that tastes amazing! It’s mash up of cream sauce and lobster mac and cheese a la Chris.

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 c mixed Italian cheeses, shredded
1/2 cup creme Fraiche
7 ounces fresh lobster meat, chopped
1/2 lb pasta
1-1/2 tablespoons parsley
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon espelette powder

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook pasta.

Melt butter in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add flour and cook roux until golden brown (about one minute, roux will be a bit chunky). Add tomatoes and heat until bubbly and thickened, about three minutes.

Add cheeses, creme frachie and lobster meat, cooking until cheese is melted. Add in noodles and stir. Remove from heat and add salt, herbs and pepper, stirring well. Serve immediately!

Serves 4.
