Instructions

  • Prepare spaghetti according to package directions; drain well.
  • Remove lobster meat from shells and chop into 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces; set aside. Pound shells into smaller pieces with meat mallet.
  • Combine broth, wine and lobster shells in saucepan; bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium; cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until liquid is reduced to 1 cup (250 mL). Strain to remove shells.
  • In food processor or blender, purée red peppers, almonds, olive oil, lemon juice and smoked paprika; set aside.
  • Melt butter in large skillet set over medium heat; cook shallot, thyme and garlic for 2 to 3 minutes or until softened. Stir in seafood broth; bring to boil. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until slightly reduced further. Stir in Rosée Pasta Sauce, spinach and lobster meat; bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until lobster meat is cooked through and sauce is thickened slightly.
  • Add pasta, salt and pepper to skillet; toss until pasta is well coated and sauce clings to pasta.
  • Spoon red pepper mixture onto each plate; swipe with back of spoon. Arrange pasta on top. Sprinkle with Parmesan and chives.

Tips

  • Save time by picking up jarred roasted red peppers in the grocery store.
  • Substitute fish stock, clam juice or chicken broth for seafood broth.
  • If desired, use cooked lobster tails ­– just add lobster meat in the last minute of cooking to reheat gently.
  • Serve pasta dish as a main course for two servings or as a starter for four servings.
