I was lucky enough to inherit some extra lobster, so I made myself some lobster penne for dinner. While Hubster was working late, I made this for myself. The recipe below is for one serving.

Lobster Penne

Lobster Penne

1 lobster tail (or lobster claws), button, minced shallots, 1 Tbsp. of chopped tarragon, 1/4 lb. dry penne pasta, 1/8 c. champagne, 9 asparagus tips, 1/8 c. sun-dried tomatoes, percorino-romano cheese

Prepare lobster tail how you prefer; boiled, steamed or grilled are all great. Cut into large chunks and set aside. Bring a pot of water to a boil and cook penne according to package directions. In a small sauté pan, melt butter and brown shallots. Add lobster, tarragon and champagne and allow to simmer. Toss in sun-dried tomatoes and asparagus. Pour lobster and sauce over a bowl full of hot pasta. Sprinkle with freshly grated cheese.

Do you ever dine solo? What do you make?
