Lobster is usually a bit too much for my budget. Last week it was on sale at Sprouts!! This morning while I was trying to figure out what to make, I saw Annie’s Mac & Cheese in my pantry and Lobster Mac & Cheese popped into my head!!!! I got so excited, it was all I could think about all day!! After work, I quickly gathered my ingredients, which were very few!

With three servings, this meal clocks in at about 312 calories a serving!!!! To start I took the lobster tails, cleaned them and placed them in the steamer for about 8 minutes until they were a beautiful pink.

While they cooked I prepared the Mac & Cheese according to the box directions. I substituted the skim milk for almond milk and didn’t use butter. I then chopped the onion & zucchini and put it in a pan to cook for a few minutes with just some salt, cayenne pepper and olive oil.

Once the lobster was done cooking, I took the meat out of the shell (a very very messy process). I had to use scissors and a knife :-P Once the meat was out I diced it and added it to the vegetables. I then combined the mac & cheese and cooked the whole thing for about two minutes to let the flavors really settle.
