  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. Boil the lobster tails in salted water until just cooked through, about 12 minutes. -- Cook 1 minute per ounce (28g).
  3. When cool, remove the meat and dice. Set aside.
  4. Toss the breadcrumbs with 1 tablespoon melted butter, 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese, and black pepper.
  5. Cook the pasta in salted boiling water until al dente, about 7 minutes.
  6. Drain and set aside.
  7. In a large sauce pan, melt the butter over medium-low heat.
  8. Add the flour and whisk, cook about a minute.

  14. Add the sharp cheddar, Comte and parmesan cheeses, one handful at a time, whisking to incorporate. When one handful is melted, add the next.

  17. Toss the cooked pasta with the sauce and ½ of the lobster, reserving about ½ for the top.
