Ingredients

1 live Maine lobster (2 pounds)

1/3 cup olive oil

2 large garlic cloves, chopped

1/2 cup white wine

1 1/2 cups basic tomato sauce

Pinch crushed red pepper flakes

2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

Salt

1/2 pound linguini, cooked

Directions

  1. Cut the lobster in half lengthwise. Remove the small, opaque clumps of tissue located next to the eye. Do not remove anything else from the lobster; the juices and the roe are what give the sauce its flavor. In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil and garlic and cook for a few minutes. Do not let the garlic burn or it will leave a bitter taste. Add the lobster flesh side down and cook until the roe is firm, about 1 minute. Add the white wine, tomato sauce, and crushed red pepper flakes. Cook a few minutes more until all the ingredients blend together. Add the chopped parsley and salt, to taste. Do not overcook the lobster; it will become tough. Add the sauce and lobster to the cooked linguini and serve immediately.
