This was horrible! Way too much lemon. We ate a small amount and then just threw it out. What a waste of good lobster.

Excellent, I added more arugula, red pepper flakes and most importantly some pasta water to extend the sauce. yum!!

I used cooking Sherry instead of white wine and tomato paste instead of tomato puree simply because that is what I had on hand. It was excellent!
