Happy New Year 2014 – Lobster Alfredo

We usually have lobster for our New Year’s Eve dinner. This year we decided it might be nice to have Lobster Alfredo with linguine. It was delicious and easy to make. Here’s how…
Boil the lobster for 7 minutes, remove it from the water and let it cool. Once cool enough to handle, remove the lobster meat from its shells. Cut it into bite size chunks and set it aside.

Now melt butter in a large skillet. Add the sliced mushrooms to the pan and cook over medium heat for 3 minutes or until lightly browned. Pour in the cream, add the salt and pepper and cheese. Remember that the cheese is salty, so don’t over salt. Continue to heat this until the sauce just begins to bubble. Meanwhile, cook the linguine and drain it well. Add the linguine to the skillet and stir for 1 minute, until the sauce begins to thicken.

Add the lobster meat and toss gently. Serve immediately. Garnish with grated cheese and chopped parsley. We paired it with Freixenet, a sparkling wine similar to champagne, produced in Spain. A great way to bring in the New Year!
