Linguine alla Lobster
From EatingWell: January/February 1992
Lobster and tomatoes combine in a simple sauce perfect for topping linguine.
- 1 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes
- 1/4 cup minced flat-leaf parsley
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- Few leaves fresh basil, (optional)
- 2 4- to 5-ounce fresh or frozen cooked lobster tails, (thawed if frozen)
- 1/4 cup cognac or other brandy
- Salt & freshly ground pepper to taste
- 1 pound whole-wheat linguine
- Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over low heat. Add garlic and sauté until softened, about 2 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, parsley, sugar and basil (if using). Simmer, uncovered, until sauce has thickened slightly, about 15 minutes.
- 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.
- 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.
Tips & Notes
- 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.
