Hey Everyone! As I was scrolling through Instagram yesterday I came across this delicious picture of one of my friend’s dinner for the night. The picture was of an amazing plate of Spicy Lobster Pasta and I immediately liked, comment and asked for the recipe. Pasta is one of my many guilty pleasures and one of my favorite quick meals to make, so I was super happy when my girlfriend tagged me in the recipe and I wanted to share it.
She too found it on Bonappetit website and the cool catch is it only takes 20 minutes. With Valentine’s Day coming up I think this maybe a nice meal to cook and serve with your favorite bottle of wine. Or just an savory meal to enjoy just because lol. Enjoy!

Spicy Lobster Pasta
Ingredients 4 SERVINGS 12 ounces spaghetti Kosher salt 2 tablespoons olive oil 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 1 large shallot, finely chopped 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes 1 pound cherry and/or Sun Gold tomatoes, halved 1 pound picked cooked lobster meat or cooked large shrimp Freshly ground black pepper 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest Lemon wedges (for serving) Preparation Cook spaghetti in a large pot of boiling salted water, stirring occasionally, until al dente. Drain, reserving 1 cup pasta cooking liquid (the secret to silky sauce). Meanwhile, heat oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook shallot and red pepper flakes, stirring often, until shallot is softened, about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook, stirring often, until tomatoes are soft and juicy, 5–8 minutes. Add lobster meat to skillet and toss to coat. Add pasta and ½ cup reserved pasta cooking liquid; season with salt and pepper. Cook, tossing constantly and adding more reserved pasta cooking liquid as needed, until sauce thickens and coats pasta, about 2 minutes. Serve pasta topped with lemon zest, with lemon wedges alongside for squeezing over.
