Pasta Fra Diavolo

 

  1. Bring 1/2 gallon of water to a low simmer. Add 1/2 tablespoon of sea salt and hold

4.         Add lobster meat and sauté lightly for 2 minutes. Deglaze pan with white wine, reduce by half

 

5.         Add all remaining ingredients except pasta to sauté pan, mix well and check for seasonings then reduce to a very low simmer

 

6.         Bring water back to a rolling boil add pasta and cook to desired texture, we suggest Al Dente

 

7 .        Drain well and add the pasta  to the sauce mixture. You may use a little of the pasta water if the sauce mixture has become too thick
