  • 2 tablespoons loosely packed mint leaves

INSTRUCTIONS

1.

Cook ZENB Pasta 1 min. less than directed on package. Drain; keep warm.

Meanwhile, heat oil in large skillet on medium-high heat until shimmering. Add lobster; cook 3-4 min, stirring occasionally until just opaque and edges begin to brown. Add garlic and chiles; cook 30 seconds stirring constantly. Transfer to clean plate.

3.

Remove pan from heat; add stock and brandy. Cook 3-5 min. on medium heat while scraping up brown bits from bottom of pan. Stir in tomatoes, soy and salt; simmer 8-10 min. until sauce is slightly thickened. Return lobster and any juices to skillet. Stir in pasta; mix gently until pasta is tender and well combined. Juice lemon half over pan. Serve immediately with mint and remaining lemon cut into wedges.

Tasty Tips

Frozen lobster tails are an excellent substitute for fresh. Quickly thaw frozen lobster tails by placing them in a tightly sealed plastic bag in a bowl of cold water for about 30 minutes. Drain, pat dry with paper towels and use immediately.
