ASTICE DI NATALE

When the Tree Gang comes for its annual decorating festa, it’s a good time to celebrate with lobster pasta.

 

1/4 lb. fresh cooked lobster meat from Citarella per person. More is better.

Serves 8+.

In a large stock pot on medium high, melt 1 – 1 1/2 lbs. butter, add juice of 3 lemons. Season with cracked white pepper to taste. Add the lobster meat just to warm not to cook.

Make 2 lbs. fresh fettuccine, cooking only about 4-5 minutes in salted boiling water. Drain.

To plate. Ladel the lobster meat and butter sauce over the fresh pasta. Garnish with diced sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil, whole capers, and sprinkle with dried basil. Top with fresh lemon zest.

Buon Natale!

 

Note: Aragosta v. Astice. It looks like a New England lobster is astice. A warm water langouste appears more aragosta
