Ingredients

  • 2 large Lobster tails
  • 1 (12 oz.) pack Linguine pasta, Gluten-Free (I use Bionaturae Organic)
  • 2 Tbsps Extra virgin olive oil (I use California Olive Ranch)
  • 1 cup organic chicken stock, low-sodium (I use Pacific Foods)
  • 1 cup organic heavy cream (I use Organic Valley)
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese + more if desired!
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-2 cups organic spinach
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, sliced (optional)

Spices + Herbs:

  • 2 tsps dried oregano (I use McCormick Spice)
  • 2 tsps dried basil (I use McCormick Spice)
  • 1 tsp black pepper (I use McCormick Spice)
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt (I use McCormick Spice)
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes  (I use McCormick Spice)
  • 2 tsps garlic powder  (I use McCormick Spice)
  • 2 tsps dried parsley (I use McCormick Spice)

Butter Mixture:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, melted (I use Land O' Lakes)
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika (I use McCormick Spice)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder (I use McCormick Spice)
  • 1 tsp dried parsley (I use McCormick Spice)

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare a medium skillet or baking sheet.
  • To prep lobster tails, slightly crack shell and remove most of lobster meat outside of shell without completely detaching shell from meat. **NOTE: This allows the lobster meat to fully cook through with shell blocking it.**
  • Add lobster tails to pan and generously brush tops of lobster meat with butter mixture and bake everything for 15-20 minutes or so.
  • In the meantime, cook the linguine pasta according to the packaging (about 8-11 minutes) and drain. Set aside.
  • In a large skillet, add olive oil over medium-high heat and add garlic cloves, cooking until translucent and fragrant, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the white wine, chicken stock, and heavy cream, whisking everything together well. Let it begin to bubble. Now, add in seasonings and continue to whisk until well combined. 
  • Reduce the heat to low so that everything simmers for 5 minutes or so. 
  • Add parmesan cheese and continue to whisk until cheese completely melts and sauce becomes nice and creamy. 
  • Lastly, add in the spinach and let cook for another minute or 2, until spinach softens and wilts. 
  • Add in pasta and toss everything together until full coated. Remove from heat.
  •  Once lobster is cooked through, remove from oven and let cool slightly. 
  • To serve immediately, add pasta to a bowl and top with lobster tail. Brush additional butter mixture to top of lobster tail and enjoy!
  • Bon Appetit!
