The Cosmopolitan Cook, Ragan Oglesby, author or "The Single Girl's Guide to Great Cooking" is back with another delicious recipe. She made a New York strip steak, on top of lobster mac and cheese on the PIX11 Morning News. She shared her recipe below:

First let’s start GRILLING!

    • “I am fearless in the kitchen. Cooking is a trial and error process.”
    • Season steaks with salt and pepper.
    • Allow the steaks to reach room temperature before placing on grill.
    • In small bowl combine butter, garlic, pepper, and salt for basting.
    • Grill steaks on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium heat until desired doneness, turning once halfway through grilling.
    • Be sure to baste during the entire cooking time!
    • Allow the steak to rest before cutting for a juicy steak.
    • Simply remove the steak from the grill, place on a plate in a warm place for 3 to 5 minutes.

Now while that rests…lets move on to the mac and cheese!

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 13 by 9-inch pan with butter.
  • In a large pot of boiling salted water over medium heat, add the pasta and cook until al dente. Drain the pasta and set aside.
  • In another large saucepan add 1 stick of butter over medium heat.
  • Once the butter is melted, add shallots and garlic.
  • Sauté until translucent
  • “Do you smell that? What man doesn’t want to come home to this hardy home cooked meal after a long day of work.”
  • Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add flour and whisk, 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Add white wine and continue whisking, about 2 minutes. Still whisking, slowly add cream and milk; cook for a minute or two more, until thickened and smooth.
  • Add paprika, anchochile pepper and bay leaf. Remove pot from the heat, add the Parrano and Gruyere, 1 tablespoon salt, the pepper, and nutmeg.
  • Once the sauce has thickened remove bay leaf.
  • Add the cooked macaroni and lobster and stir well. Spoon mixture into prepared pan and sprinkle the top with panko bread crumbs.
  • “This is the best. Creamy, Buttery and delicious”
  • I love this recipe! It is one of my go-tos, because you can serve it individually, but it’s also WONDERFUL for a big group!
