How to Make Pasta with Lobster,Wild Mushrooms, and Cream
- Melt butter in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add lobster tails and saute until shells are bright red in spots, about 5 minutes. Cover skillets;reduce heat to low and cook until lobster is cooked through,about 6 minutes. Remove from heat. Using slotted spoon,transfer lobster to work surface. Using heavy large knife,cut each tail lengthwise in half. Remove meat from shell. Cut meat crosswise into 1/2 inch pieces.
- Return same skillet to medium-high heat(do not clean). Add mushrooms,half of basil,green onions,and garlic; saute until mushrooms soften,about 5 minutes. Add cream and clam juice. Boil until sauce is slightly thickened,stirring occasionally,about 10 minutes. Reduce heat to low. Add lobster(or shrimp if using) and simmer 1 minute. Stir in remaining basil. Season sauce to taste with salt and pepper.
- Meanwhile,cook pasta in large pot of boiling salted water until tender but still firm to bite. Drain well. Return to pot. Pour sauce over pasta and add cheese;toss over low heat until warmed through, then serve.
