It always amazes people when I tell them I don’t watch any cooking shows. Although that’s true, I find The Cooking Channel website to be a great resource for recipes and ideas. We had some lobster tails and as impressed as I was by Mary’s Lobster Pot Pie, we were looking for something a little less involved on a work night. As haute cuisine as this recipe sounds, it comes together quickly with a roux-based cream sauce loaded with cheese. The wine in this sauce takes it right over the top! We used (and drank!) Adelaida 2010 Version which was a perfect match for this dish.

We didn’t have quite enough lobster meat, so we added 1/2 pound raw shrimp, cut into thirds. The addition of wine to this sauce is just wonderful! The sauce, itself, would be great with so many things – we thought ham and peas could easily be substituted for the shrimp and lobster.
