"One Halloween I decided to try out a macaroni and cheese recipe using pumpkin, and it turned out to be a huge hit. The combination of the cheeses and the pumpkin made it so very rich and creamy. The next time I decided to make this dish I added some cooked lobster I had left over, and from there I just fell in love. I have had lobster macaroni and cheese dishes before, but never anything like this. All of this may sound strange and unusual but once you try this dish you will never get it out of your head. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve with fresh bread or dinner rolls." — ScottySauce

I used imitation lobster meat and fat free evaporated milk to keep the calorie count down on the recipe. We liked this, but there isn't enough "cheese sauce" that we like. Next time I would double the amount of sauce and decrease the baking time. Overall everyone liked it.
This was amazing! The only thing I did differently was add more cheese of a different variety such as goat and munster. Even after I felt like I should have added more cheese and garlic. I'm most certainly going to make this again!
I made this recipe and doubled it. I thought there was plenty of cheese sauce. I used real crab instead of lobster but kept everything eles the same, my family loved it! Even my son in culinary school (who usually tells me how I make everythig wrong) loved it! Thank you!
We really liked this. I made it as stated in the recipe. Next time I will reduce or omit the lemon zest. The lemon flavor overpowered a little. I also prefer it a bit more creamy like it is before baking, so maybe next time I will serve it off the stove top to retain the creaminess, but overall this is a good dish. don't let the ingredient list turn you away. It is very easy to make and quite tasty. I was surprised I liked the pumpkin added to the cheese, but it gave it that extra something and the lobster really goes well in thi! Thanks for a unique and tasty dish ScottySauce :)
