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.

Ingredients

    • 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

Preparation

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

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

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