About Us

This summery recipe combines the delicious flavours of a buttery lobster roll into a creamy pasta. It’s overflowing with succulent lobster meat, butter, lemon, parmesan, and fresh herbs. Serve topped with fresh chives, extra parm, and lemon.

There’s something about summer and seafood. I don’t think I could enjoy a lobster roll the same way during the winter. That being said, we love making the most of it and digging in to all the lobster rolls, tacos, and fresh seafood while we can. For that added lobster roll taste we dusted the pasta with some Old Bay Seasoning which is a commonly used ingredient when making lobster rolls.

The sauce is simple. Made from pasta water, lemon, butter, and parmesan. When making pasta we love reserving a bit of that pasta water and using it to create a thick creamy sauce for our pasta. The secret ingredient and definitely the key ingredient in all those delicious restaurant pastas is none other than pasta water.

We love this dish! Those beautiful thick claws poking through and the big chunks of lobster make this a show stopper. While lobster meat can be a bit expensive, this is the perfect dish to serve for someone special and your loved ones or if your simply looking to impress. While you can easily substitute in 1 pound of any type of lobster meat if you only have access to tails, it really is the claws that draw you in. For this dish we actually purchased already shelled lobster meat from our local fish monger which helps reduce the cooking time. You could opt for a live lobster just be prepared for the extra work and additional time needed.

We hope you enjoy this recipe! If you give this recipe a try, let us know! Leave a comment, rate it (once you’ve tried it), and take a picture and tag it on Instagram! We love to see what you come up with. #thecommunalfeast
