Lobster Linguini

This lobster linguini is so over the top delicious! Rich, creamy and soooo satisfying! Use fresh or frozen lobster meat, just be sure to drain the lobster if it’s frozen.

Originally we had planned to make this dish with linguine, but at the last minute realized we had grabbed spaghetti by mistake. Either pasta works but there’s no doubt that a broad noodle is best.
