Lobster " Mac n Cheese "

I I swore I'd never do a mac n cheese recipe! Let alone one with lobster in! Turns out I was wrong on both counts, it's become rather fashionable to have some kind of Mac n cheese on the menu, I've seen it done really well and I've seen it done extremely badly

I'm hoping that my version is at least done well and fantastically tasty!! It takes the already delicious Mac n cheese and turns it into a real dinner party winner, you can if you want use crab, and if you really want to knock your friends socks off?! Use both!! Totally over the top, but just awesome

This recipe I'm going to share with you guys will feed 4 people really well
