There was a sale at Alberston’s and there were two feisty lobsters left. It seemed like a sign that I should buy them. Since I’m currently obsessed with spaghetti squash it seemed like a better idea than a baked potato for a side. My friend Ali had bell peppers, a white onion, and a large poblano pepper. I decided to slice them thinly to saute with the spaghetti squash that I steamed in the microwave, with butter and garlic of course.
I finished the spaghetti squash with a can of fire roasted tomatoes and a cup of heavy cream. Added about a tablespoon of dried garlic and simmered until the cream thickened. I finished it with crushed red pepper and a pinch of salt and pepper. It was exactly the creamy peppery crunchy side I had imagined for my buttery boiled lobster!
Check back tomorrow for a post about leftover lobster bisque! 🙂
