1½ Cups (about 4 Ounces) Muenster Cheese، grated

1 Pound Shrimp، raw، deveined، tail removed
½ to ¾ Pound Cooked Lobster، chopped into chunks

Directions
Note: Store bought lobster that has been steamedprecooked along with your choice of lump crab meat works great for this recipe.

Prepare، chop، and dice all of the ingredients first. Grate all of the cheeses and toss together in one big bowl. Lightly season the shrimp.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In a large stock pot، bring 3 quarts of water to a boil over high heat. Season the boiling water، with 3 Tablespoons of salt. Cook until just al dente or 2 minutes short of the suggested cooking time on the package. Once done، drain the pasta، DO NOT rinse، and toss with 1 or 2 tablespoons of olive oil or vegetable oil to keep it from sticking together while the sauce is being cooked.

Preheat the milk and half & half together in the microwave، about 3 to 4 minutes. Next، in a large skillet melt the butter and olive oil together over medium-high heat. Add the onions and sauté for about 3 to 4 minutes or until soft. Add the chopped garlic and thyme and cook for another minute. Add and stir in the flour، cook for about 2 minutes. (This is a roux. Do not brown it.) Next، while whisking vigorously add all of the milk mixture to the roux. Whisk until the sauce is smooth and has no lumps. Once it’s smooth، turn the heat down to medium. Add the salt، pepper، Grand Diamond All Purpose Seasoning and hot sauce to taste. Simmer for about 5 to 8 minutes or until the sauce has thickened. Whisk occasionally to keep it from sticking.

Next، add 2½ cups of the grated chesses to the sauce (reserve 2½ cups for layering) and stir just until the cheese melts and the sauce is combined. Turn off the heat. Stir in the drained pasta.

In a lighted sprayed 9x13 baking dish، pour in half of the macaroni & cheese. Next، place the first layer of seafood، using half of each. Sprinkle over 1¼ cup of the reserved cheeses. Add the next layer of macaroni & cheese، repeat layering، and top with the final 1¼ cup of cheese. Bake COVERED with aluminum foil at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes. Serve hot. (Note: Reheat leftovers covered also.)
