Natasha’s Lobster Mac & Cheese
“I decided to try something different with my lobster based on a craving I had been having all week. One of my co-workers brought in homemade mac & cheese for lunch one day and it looked so good I asked for her recipe. Adding lobster changed it from familiar to fantastic.” – blogger Natasha Fillmore
