Light and Fresh Lobster Basil Pasta

It may be cold and blustery outside but this pasta dish tastes like summer! The flavors are so light that it’s not going to leave you feeling heavy and bloated like some pasta dishes can and the addition of basil screams warmer temperatures! If we can’t have the warmth of summer then at least we can enjoy a nice summery meal while we wait! And if all of that wasn’t enough this is also a 20 minute meal! Thanks to Logan’s Daily Catch for the beautiful lobster!
