A serving of this healthy lobster pappardelle contains just 320 calories and 1g of saturated fat!

Serves 4


12 oz lobster meat, chopped (from 3 steamed lobsters, 1-1¼ lbs each)
1¾ lbs plum tomatoes cored, shocked and peeled or 1 - 28 oz can of whole, peeled plum tomatoes, no sodium, drained
Lobster coral (optional)
3 cloves garlic, peeled
1 jalapeño
½ tsp salt
½ tsp sugar
2 tbsp olive oil
6 oz dried pappardelle, whole wheat
½ cup fresh parsley, chopped
Pinch salt
Pinch red pepper flakes

Directions


Purée drained and peeled tomatoes (canned or fresh) with the coral from the lobster (optional), 1 clove of garlic, 1 inch of jalapeño, salt, sugar and 1 tbsp olive oil.

Pour into saucepan and heat on medium-low heat, bring to boil then reduce to a simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Cook pasta in salted water until it is al dente, just undercooked.

Reserve 1 cup of the pasta water and set aside.

In a large skillet heat 1 tbsp of olive oil, sauté 2 cloves of thinly sliced garlic for 1 minute on medium heat, add the lobster meat and continue sautéing for another minute or 2.

Add well drained pasta and sauté for another 2 minutes.

Add sauce and continue to cook.

If more liquid is necessary add some of the pasta water, little by little.

After 2 minutes, once pasta and sauce is heated through, add chopped parsley. Taste and season with salt and red pepper flakes.
