How would you rate this recipe? Sara Bedard. I made this recipe tonight and it's very good! I didn't have any Lobster but I used shrimp. I wish I had lobster. But it was still really good. I recommend this for anyone who loves mac n cheese and seafood! Used 2 cups sharp Cheddar 1 cup fontina and 1 cup Parmesan cheese. It fed 4 of us for dinner and lunch the next day.
