Easy Langostino Macaroni And Cheese


This week my easy recipe was inspired by Kacy Love’s cheez-it topped mac and cheese and by Chef John Howie’s lobster macaroni and cheese.  But, as usual, I couldn’t leave well enough alone so I added a few touches of my own to make my Easy Langostino Macaroni And Cheese.

Langostino Mac & CheeseIngredients

12 oz frozen Langostino tails (pre-cooked).

3 cups elbow macaroni (al dente).

8 oz sharp cheddar cheese – shredded.

2 cups of cheez-it.

2 oz fantinella cheese – shredded.

1/2 cup heavy cream.

3/4 stick butter.

1/2 tsp sea salt.

1/4 tsp dried Tarragon.

1/8 tsp ground white pepper.


Rinse and thaw langostino tails. Drain all water.

In large pot begin boiling water, and add macaroni when water is boiling.  Cook per package instructions, until al dente.

In large sauce pot melt butter on low heat.  Add a little of the cream, cheddar and fantinella and stir as it melts.  Repeat until only a handful of cheddar and a little of the fantinella is left.  Reserve the leftover cheese.

When macaroni is al dente drain water and then return macaroni to the same hot pot (but no burner heat), add the melted cheese mixture, add the Tarragon, salt and pepper and gently fold.  Add the langostino and again gently fold.

Spray casserole pan with canola oil, and than add the macaroni mixture.

Crush the cheez-it and pour over top of macaroni and then sprinkle with reserved cheese.

Bake in oven pre-heated to 375 degrees for 15 to 25 minutes (want to get a nice amber color on topping.

And that’s it- you just made an awesome hearty, and easy family meal.


I’m very proud to share this recent 5-Star review on my new novel VEYRON.




Reviewed By Eileen Johnson for Readers’ Favorite – 5 stars In Veyron by Roger Scouton, Jack Fields and Amber Reyes are a high powered team hired to oversee a security job at the Marine Corps Warrior’s Hospice Car Rally, a rally of classic cars in Arizona. The most classic and most expensive of the cars in the rally is a Bugatti Veyron owned by Prince Ahmed. Jack and Amber are ex-military and clandestine operatives hired by the insurance firm in London to work with Colonel Day, whose organization is providing security for the event. Of course, the event does not proceed as planned, as priceless cars are stolen, owners are killed, and the Prince is kidnapped during the rally. Now, Jack and Amber are required to use their considerable skills and connections to solve the mystery and bring the perpetrators to justice.Veyron is a sequel to Roger Scouton’s book Goldplay in which readers were first introduced to Jack and Amber, the team of protagonists in his new novel. Not having read the first novel, I am sure there is some back story that describes how Jack and Amber ended up being a couple and a team. However, Veyron definitely stands on its own and the reader should not feel compelled to read Goldplay first. Having said that, the energy, characters, and plot line in Veyron were so interesting that I intend to go back and read Goldplay, too! The best part about Veyron is that the reader essentially gets three stories in one book. The characters are the glue that holds the book together – and the primary and secondary characters are wonderful. I highly recommend this book for anyone who likes action, adventure, and mystery.

Good Eating and Table Talk,
