Makes you hungry just looking at it, doesn't it?

So... Last night, I offered to cook dinner when I found out my parents bought some lobster tails. Since my dad is notorious for overcooking meats, I couldn't let him handle something as rare as lobster.
When my parents offered baked potatoes with it, one of the gears in my head started turning, and I decided against it. In it's place, I used some of the food we had sitting around to make a simple pasta side dish of vermicelli, basil, olive oil, tomatoes, and garlic.
While I would have preferred to serve asparagus, we had some green beans that needed to be used up, so I went ahead and steamed those.
The final result was this:

Simply beautiful.

I'd rather have a pepperoni pizza, not a seafood fan

that would be restaurant quality if you took off about half the amount you put on the plate.

Thanks!
I'll make sure to serve less if we ever have guests over.

Looks tasty!

We are doing something sort of like that with shrimp tonight. I will post it later when I get home.

Yummy. My wife hates seafood so I don't get it much so just looking at that pic reminds me of what I'm missing. :(

I'm more of a shrimp and scallop person but it does look good.

OK - How about this:



Fried up a chopped shallot and a clove of chopped garlic, added 1 lb of shrimp and cooked 4 minutes. Remove shrimp and set aside.

In the same skillet add a 28 oz can of peeled chopped tomatoes. Season with salt & pepper. Cook down a bit to reduce the liquid. Add 1/4 cup white wine and 1/4 cup chicken stock then cook down some more to evaporate half of the liquid. Remove pan from heat and add 1/2 cup mascarpone, 1 cup of chopped fresh arugula, 3 tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon and the cooked shrimp. Stir to blend then toss with cooked penne pasta. Top it with some grated parmesan and serve.

Oh man! It was a hit. We will make this again for sure.

-Mark.
