A CookTale

This week at the local PriceChopper, Lobsters from 1 to 5 pounds are on sale at $6.99. At these prices it’s a great opportunity to gorge on this usually pricey treat. Wouldn’t it be great if one day they did this with Caviar? Oh well, I’ll take what I get and be quite satisfied.

Serves 2


2 1-1/2 LB Lobster (steamed)
4 oz of Spaghetti
1 C of Marinara Sauce (homemade or Rao’s, or more if needed)
1/3 C of Basil Leaves (cut to a chiffonade)
Sea Salt
2 TB of EVOO


1, Have the fishmonger steam the Lobsters or do them yourself. If so, send them to Lobster heaven mercifully by quickly inserting the point of a chef’s knife into the top of the head. This immediately does the job. Then steam them for 13 to 14 minutes.

2, Crack the shells & carefully remove the Lobster Meat.

3.Cook the Spaghetti with Sea Salt in boiling water according to package directions, drain and add to a large pan. Add the cup of Marinara sauce, pieces of the Lobster Meat & the chiffonade of Basil. Toss together & add as many pieces of Lobster Meat as satisfies your appetite.
