Healthy Lobster Mac and Cheese

This “recipe” is quintessential CNG because it is ridiculous little kid/comfort food and is super easy to make.

Ok, so really – this is a work in progress. I definitely like the idea of this dish but I think it needs to be tweaked a teensy bit in the future to make it perfect. I’m thinking along the lines of baking it, casserole style. Prepare yourself for some future revamps of healthy lobster mac and cheese.

Ingredients:

  • boxed mac and cheese
  • fake lobster (i.e. fish flavored lobster flakes → pretending this is not fish)
  • old bay seasoning
  • garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste

It’s healthy because of the wheat noodles. Yeah. Healthy.

Mix together and serve.

Tuna says I’m weird, but just go with it.

Do you know of any good ways to spruce up comfort food?

  1. I don’t much like lobster, but do like crab (including the fake stuff). So I tried this tonight with crab flakes, Old Bay, etc. I liked it, and used only one dish…but might stick to keeping the mac/cheese to the side. But it’s good–will give it a second try.

Tell me all the things.
