  • Wide pot
  • Large pot
  • Colander


  • 16 ounces dry spaghetti, linguine, or fettuccine ½ cup pasta cooking water reserved
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound cherry tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 shallot peeled and minced
  • 6 cloves garlic peeled and minced
  • 1 red Fresno chili pepper trimmed and minced
  • 1 cup dry white wine or seafood stock
  • 16 ounces cooked lobster meat or shrimp
  • ½ cup fresh parsley minced
  • ½ lemon juiced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Crushed red pepper to taste
  • Pinch of sugar optional


Cook the Pasta:

  • Bring a large pot of generously salted water to a boil. Once boiling, add the pasta and cook until al dente. Reserve ½ cup of the pasta cooking water and set aside. Drain the pasta and set aside.

Start the Sauce:

  • While waiting on the pasta water, cook the sauce. Heat the oil in a wide pot over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the cherry tomatoes and cook without moving for 3-4 minutes or until they begin to blister and char. Flip once or twice more until charred all over. Season lightly with salt.

Cook the Aromatics:

  • Melt the butter into the tomatoes. Once frothy, add the shallot and cook for 2-3 minutes until just beginning to soften.
  • Add the garlic and red Fresno pepper and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. If you'd like more heat, add another shake of crushed red pepper.

Add the Wine:

  • Pour in the wine and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes until thickened and reduced. Season with salt, pepper, and a pinch of sugar if you like.

Cook the Lobster:

  • Add the lobster and the reserved pasta cooking water. Cook for 5-7 minutes until the lobster is warmed through and the sauce is glossy. Add juice from half a lemon and the minced parsley. Taste and season again to your preferences.

To Serve:

  • Divide the cooked lobster pasta between plates and garnish with more parsley if you like. Enjoy!
