Seafood is one of the easiest foods to cook, and this lobster pasta also one of the quickest meals you can make. Most fish and shellfish cooks very quickly, including lobster.

Btw, if you’re looking for the pasta and lobster song which includes the lyrics, “he be feeding me pasta and lobster” then I suggest you make this dish while you listen to it! 🦞

I used meat from lobster claws, but you can use any lobster meat, as long as it’s chopped into bite size pieces. My dad isn’t a huge seafood pasta fan, but he adores his pasta with anchovies!

You know I’m going to tell you to use the best quality ingredients, right? It’s a must for this dish (actually, it’s a must for any dish)! Maine lobster is the one you want in the US, garlic from Gilroy, California, and good quality extra virgin olive oil, of course. However, with all the fraudulent activity in the olive oil business, you may feel uncomfortable when you buy olive oil, and it’s completely justified.Worse than that, it may not even be olive oil you’re buying!

The lobster sauce for this pasta is very light, not heavy or thick at all. It’s perfect for a meal that won’t weigh you down. You can even add a squeeze of lemon juice just before serving.

Which pasta shape should I use for lobster pasta?

I used a type of pennoni (large penne) pasta, and fettuccine, but you can use regular penne, rigatoni, or even spaghetti, or linguine.

Cioppino, is another great seafood dish! (A seafood stew.)
