Roasted Tomato and Lobster Pasta

I used to be so good with coming up with meal plans. It is so hard to find easy, affordable recipes, and even harder trying not to make the same things all the time! As much as I love having tacos...we can't eat them every night! I came across this recipe through Bloglovin'.  It looked really yummy, so I saved it. To be honest, I saved it knowing that I'd probably never make it. Well we went grocery shopping that night, and Publix just so happened to have lobster tails on sale that week! So basically we had to try!
Lobster is something people usually save for special occasions, so I wasn't even sure how to cook it. The recipe kind of tells you, but I'm such a novice that I had to Google it just to be sure. 
So, while this may seem to be a super fancy-shmancy dinner, it was super easy to put together! And, does anything smell better than sauteed garlic?? 


Here's what you do:

Preheat your oven to 375*
Place 2 cartons cherry tomatoes on a baking tray. Splash with olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake for about 10 minutes, until tomatoes are soft. 

Cook 1 package of spaghetti according to box directions. 

To cook your lobster tails: bring about 6 cups of salted water to a boil. Simmer for about 8 minutes, until shells are bright red and the meat is tender when poked with a fork. Drain. When cool, slice meat into small pieces. 

Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute 2 tablespoons of minced garlic in 1/4 cup olive oil. Simmer. 
Add chopped lobster, roasted tomatoes, freshly chopped basil leaves, 1 cup white wine, and salt & pepper. Break up roasted tomatoes with a wooden spoon.

Toss the spaghetti and tomato mixture together. Enjoy!


Leave me a comment: Are you afraid of making lobster? Do you have an fancy dish that is actually really easy?
