    Keyword: cheesecake, Lobster, pasta, seafood


    • 1 lb Macaroni pasta
    • 8 tbsp Butter unsalted
    • 12 oz Shrimp shelled and deveined
    • 12 oz Scallops - large
    • 1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs
    • 1 ea Onion, chopped
    • 1 1/2 tsp Garlic cloves, minced
    • 1/3 cup All-purpose flour
    • 3 cups Whole milk
    • 1/8 tsp Ground nutmeg
    • 1/2 tsp Old Bay Seasoning
    • 1 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
    • 3/4 tsp Black pepper freshly ground
    • 1 1/3 cups Grated parmesan cheese
    • 1 1/3 cups Grated Swiss cheese
    • 1 1/3 cups Grated extra sharp cheddar cheese
    • 8 oz Lobster meat - cooked
    • Fresh parsley, chopped


    • Cook the macaroni noodles a little ahead of time cooking 2 minutes less than al-dente using the package as your guide. Drain and rinse with cold water to stop further cooking.
    • If the scallops are full sized, slice them horizontally to create 1/4 to 1/3 inch slices. Pat dry on paper towel. Heat a large non-stick skillet to medium high and add a tablespoon of butter. Sear the scallops turning only once so you have a nice golden brown on each side but still soft. Remove scallops from pan and set aside.
    • Preheat the oven to 400ºF
    • Cut the peeled and deveined shrimp into good bite sized pieces. Add another tablespoon of butter to the skillet and cook the shrimp for about 3 minutes, until no longer pink. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
    • In a large saucepan, melt the remaining 6 tablespoons of butter. Spoon out 2 tablespoons of the butter and mix it into the panko breadcrumbs.
    • Add the diced onion and minced garlic to the saucepan and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, until the onion has softened stirring continuously. Add in the flour, continuing to stir for about 1 minute.
    • With a whisk, slowly add the milk, whisking to make sure the mixture is smooth and free of lumps. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat to a simmer, stirring until it has thickened.
    • Add in the salt, pepper, nutmeg and Old Bay Seasoning.
    • Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the three cheeses, stirring until fully melted and smooth. Fold in the macaroni noodles and all of the seafood.
    • Pour the mixture into a buttered oven proof casserole large enough to hold it all or use 2 smaller prepared casseroles if it is not all going to be used immediately.
    • Spread the buttered panko breadcrumb mixture over the top and bake for about 20 minutes or until the top is nice and golden.
    • Garnish with fresh parsley and serve.
