  • 1 (16 ounce) package gluten-free macaroni (I use Schar's penne)
  • 1 (2 pound) lobster, split
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • 8 black peppercorns
  • 2 cups milk
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 5 tablespoons gluten-free flour
  • 1 pound shredded Gruyere cheese
  • 3 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup grated Romano cheese
  • kosher salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons gluten-free panko bread crumbs or crushed Rice Chex (my preference)
  • 1/8 to 1/4  teaspoon truffle oil (optional)

Directions:
Fill a large pot with lightly salted water, cook pasta until al dente, or slightly tender to the bite.

Reserve about 1 cups of the hot pasta water, then drain the pasta in a colander set in the sink, and rinse with cold water to cool. Set aside.

Return the pasta water to the large pot, and place the lobster halves in the pot, cut-side up. Return the water to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and steam the lobster just until the meat firms and turns opaque, about 3 minutes.

Remove the lobster and allow to cool for a few minutes, then remove the meat and cut into bite sized pieces. Reserve the shells.

Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the onion and cook until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes; scrape the onions into a small bowl and set aside.

Place the reserved lobster shells, garlic, shallots, peppercorns, and milk into the saucepan. Bring to a gentle simmer over medium heat, and cook for 20 minutes.

Heat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Melt 5 tablespoons of butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk in the gluten-free flour, and stir until the mixture becomes paste-like and light golden brown, about 10 minutes. Strain the milk through a mesh sieve. Gradually whisk the milk into the flour mixture, and bring to a simmer over medium heat.

Cook and stir until the mixture is thick and smooth, 10 to 15 minutes.

Stir the Gruyere, Cheddar, and Romano cheeses into the thickened milk mixture until melted and smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper, then stir in the reserved lobster, onions, and macaroni.

Pour the gluten-free pasta into a 4 quart casserole dish or a cast iron skillet and smooth the top. Sprinkle evenly with the gluten-free panko crumbs, or crushed Rice Chex.

Bake in the preheated oven until the sauce is bubbly, and the top is golden brown, 8 to 12 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly. Top with a splash of truffle oil and serve.

Due to the nature of the kitchen on those kind of environments it is very hard to not have CC. They are obviously not confident that they are 100% gluten-free. Honestly I would not eat any any place like that due to CC issues. I had my share of so called gluten-free earlier on with my celiac in t...

I was browsing on QVC this morning and found they have a bread machine on sale. It has a gluten free setting. Remember someone asking about them not too long ago so thought I would post a link to the item. Be sure to read the questions and answers at the bottom of the ad. It is on sale for...

Well, as a celiac the gluten causes your own body to flare with antibodies and mistakenly attack your body most people the intestines. (I also have it attack my entire nervous system and brain) Your antibodies can stay flared for weeks to a month or so with just a crumb, so cheating is not a opti...

Solid advice. Wish that more people would consider that this might be necessary for some and not entirely paranoid. Could very well be airborne, but most likely culprit is something you're eating. That said, baking, construction/open drywall, farms/animal food and bulk/flour aisles in grocery sto...

So I previously went to Buffalo Wild Wings and they gave me the gluten-free menu. I asked the waitress if anything is mixed into the fryers somehow with the ultimate nachos, since I read up that they don't switch out fryers for celiac customers, which is fine. She claimed there's no cross contami...
