David Pasternack's Spaghetti with Lobster and Chiles


  • Four 1-pound lobsters, each cut into 8 pieces
  • 1 1/2 pounds spaghetti
  • 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 6 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 2 ounces assorted chiles (such as habanero, jalapeno, serrano, or banana), seeded and minced
  • 1 1/2 cups David Pasternack's Tomato Sauce
  • 10 mint leaves, thinly sliced crosswise


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat; season generously with salt. Cook lobster, excluding the tail pieces, for 5 minutes; using a slotted spoon, remove from water. Reserve 1/4 cup cooking water. Set aside.

  2. Bring another large pot of salted water to a boil. Add spaghetti, and cook, stirring occasionally, according to package directions. Drain spaghetti, reserving 1 cup cooking water; set aside.

  3. In a large saute pan, heat 4 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat. Add lobster tails and cook for 4 minutes; reduce heat to medium-low. Add garlic and chiles; cook for 3 minutes. Add reserved lobster. Add tomato sauce; cook until heated through. Add pasta and remaining 2 tablespoons oil along with reserved cooking water, if necessary; toss to combine. Serve garnished with mint.
