  • 1½ teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • ¼ cup minced flat-leaf parsley

  1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over low heat. Add garlic and saute until softened, about 2 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, parsley, sugar and basil (if using). Simmer, uncovered, until sauce has thickened slightly, about 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, split lobster tails lengthwise with a sharp knife. Remove the meat, chop coarsely and add it to the sauce. Simmer until the lobster is heated through, about 5 minutes longer. Stir in cognac and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Meanwhile, cook linguine in boiling, salted water until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes or according to package directions. Drain and transfer to a large shallow bowl and toss with the lobster sauce. Serve immediately.
  • A 1-lb. whole lobster may be substituted for 2 tails. To prepare it for sauce, boil or steam it for 10 minutes. Cool, remove meat from the claws and tails, and chop.
