This is my favorite comfort food. This version is creamy and packed with flavor. The lobster version here also happens to be one of my most asked-for dishes. When mac and cheese is already a favorite, it can only get better with cannabis—and garlic buttered lobster and truffle oil!

• 1 pound box Ziti Rigati or Cavatappi
(corkscrew shape) pasta

• 2 cups milk

• ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard

• ¼ cup chicken stock, room temperature

• 3 tablespoons grass-fed butter

• 1 tablespoon olive oil

• 1 tablespoon canna-butter plus 1 tablespoon salted grass-fed butter

• ¼ cup all-purpose flour

• ½ pound Emmentaler Swiss cheese, cubed into ½-inch cubes

• ¼ pound yellow sharp cheddar cheese, cubed into ½-inch cubes

• ½ pound cooked lobster tail, cubed into ½-inch cubes and tossed in lightly salted garlic butter.

• ½ teaspoon salt

• ½ teaspoon black pepper

• ½ teaspoon garlic powder

• 1 teaspoon onion powder

• White truffle oil (optional)


• Boil the pasta according to directions until al dente (cooked yet firm), usually about 8 to 9 minutes.

• In a measuring cup, combine the milk, Dijon mustard and chicken stock.

• Over medium flame, melt the grass-fed butter and olive oil. Lower the flame and melt in the canna-butter.

• Slowly stir in the flour, one teaspoon at a time, until you form a paste.

• Slowly add the milk mixture to the paste and stir until creamy, about four to five minutes.

• Add in the cheese and continue to stir every minute or so until it melts.

• Add the salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder. Stir well to combine. Lower the flame and let it simmer. Stir occasionally, until the sauce starts to bubble and look thick.

• Immediately remove from the heat and stir.

• Preheat oven to 340ºF and grease a large 9-by-13-inch baking dish.

• Drain the pasta and return it to the pot. Mix in lobster. Mix three-quarters of the sauce into the pasta.

• Transfer to the prepared baking dish and cover with the rest of the sauce.

• Bake for 20 minutes and then raise the oven temperature to broil. Watch carefully as you broil for five to seven minutes until the top is golden brown.

• Remove from the oven, sprinkle with truffle oil (optional), and serve.
