Chef notes

This recipe takes minutes to prepare but makes a big statement as a main course. The luxurious lobster makes this dish feel indulgent, but the fresh veggies and heart-healthy olive oil make it good for you.

Technique tip: After peeling garlic, remove the smell from your hands by rubbing your hands with salt.

Swap option: For a keto-friendly recipe, swap pasta with cooked spaghetti squash.


  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 1 cup frozen English peas, thawed
  • 1 cup blanched asparagus
  • 1 pinch crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 pound cooked pasta, reserving 1/2 cup pasta water
  • 4 cups lobster meat
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan



Place large pot over medium heat. Add olive oil, and once hot, add garlic. Sauté garlic for 2-3 minutes.


Turn heat to low and add all the other ingredients except Parmesan. Stir gently until pasta and lobster are heated thoroughly.


Pour mixture into a serving bowl. Sprinkle Parmesan over pasta and serve.
