1 large (2 pound)
1 (28 ounce) can
ground black pepper
1 (8 ounce) package
fresh parsley, chopped
Well, I have now tried this recipe two ways. The first time I planned to make it I could not find lobster, so I substituted steak (broil first till med. rare, dice, and add to sauce in the end). It was excellent.
The second time I did use lobster, and it is excellent both ways.
I would like to offer my suggestions for an even more enjoyable taste experience.
I used many more cloves of garlic called for, used extra buuter, and added fresh, chopped mushrooms.
I did not use the amount of cinnamon called for, as only a hint is what it needed. Just maybe 1/2 a teaspoon.
The most important ingredient I added, and someone is bound to thank me for this, is Sherry (Marsala can also be used). About a 1/4 cup of this truly completes the taste. It makes all the difference.
Also, only a few dashes of salt is needed. The 2 t called for I believe is way too much.
I also used a 28 oz sized can of Pureed Tomatoes, instead of diced, for a smoother sauce.
Can top with freshly grated parmesean.
I would love to read someone else's review who tried making this with the sherry, or substituting w/ a good cut of steak. I would hate to be the only one to savor this recipe with the additions.
Wonderful with a crusty bread and a caesar salad.
Do you like your lobster/pasta to taste like cinnamon rolls, if so this is the plate for you! I was very excited to make this because it sounded delicious, the only thing that made me iffy was the cinnamon. Just like I thought the cinnamon was way to overpowering and made it grossly sweet. I was very disappointing since I spent a lot of money on this nice food, added extra garlic, extra onions,and mushrooms and sadly all I could taste was the cinnamon, I could barely taste the lobster. DO NOT ADD CINNAMON TO YOURS OR JUST ADD A DASH! you have been warned!
I made this recipe on New Year's day to use up leftover lobster from our New Year's Eve feast. My family loved this recipe, including my 10- and 12-year-old boys. They actually put it on their list of top 10 favorite meals! I was a bit skeptical, as the recipe seemed so simple, I thought it would be bland. But it was fantastic! I made a couple of changes: I used shallots instead of onions, 1/2 diced tomatoes and 1/2 tomato sauce instead of all diced tomatoes, and bow-tie pasta instead of spaghetti noodles. I really recommend the bow-tie pasta, as it carries the sauce really well. Serve with crusty bread to sop up the sauce!
I made a few little changes since we are trying to eat more healthy. I used half and half instead of cream, and I sauted the onions and garlic in olive oil, then added the tomatoes to that to avoid the extra fat. I used canned lobster to bring the cost down as well. Over all, still tasty and a little more healthy, so I didn't feel quite as bad about enjoying it. Better fresh, the leftovers (at least my way) weren't the greatest.
I thought this was simply fantastic. The only thing I did different was chop up the lobster in big bite size chunks so it was mixed in with the pasta. I made this for a family get together so I tripled all the ingredients except for the lobster which I quadrupled and the cinnamon which I only put 1 teaspoon to all that sauce and you could still taste it. The recipe calls for way too much cinnamon, use very little. I have to say this was very different than anything I've made before but it was a huge it.
AWESOME dish!!! Really simple and easy to follow but totally DELICIOUS!!! I substituted the whole lobster for frozen lobster chunks and added bell peppers, mushrooms, and some corn starch to thicken it. Definitely a dish I'll be making again.
I halved the recipe, added scallops and used angel hair pasta--my picky hubby loved it! Next time I'm planning to add wild mushrooms and a sprinkle of good Parmesan cheese.
My family loved this recipe. I made some substitutions: immitation lobster, fresh tomatoes, margarine, and half & half. I also added some red & yellow peppers. I doubled the recipe but left the cinnamon at 1T.
Before cooking the spaghetti I broke it in half to make it easier to toss. I incorporated the meat into the sauce and tossed the pasta in it.
My husband, who 1)never eats leftovers and 2) ranks new dishes "good" at best LOVED this. He told me a half dozen times it's his new favorite dish. He also ate all of the leftovers.
