  • Remove lobsters from pot. When cool enough to handle, remove meat from tails and claws, keeping the meat intact as much as possible; discard shells. Brush lobster meat with melted butter. Using a sharp knife, cut tails in half lengthwise; reserve 6 tail halves for serving, and chop remaining tail halves into 3 to 4 pieces each. Set lobster meat aside.

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and onion; cook, stirring, until soft and translucent, 3 to 5 minutes. Add tomato confit and let simmer 3 to 5 minutes; remove sauce from heat and keep warm.

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil; generously salt water and return to a boil. Add pasta and cook until al dente, according to package directions. Drain and transfer pasta to a large serving platter.

  • Pour sauce over pasta and arrange lobster on top. Sprinkle with chopped mint or basil and season with salt and pepper; serve immediately.

Martha, Justin IS RIGHT - it IS lobster "POO"!! ALWAYS peel back that bit J showed you and carefully remove that long membrane-y "poo-tract" - it will usually peel right out. BTW, the easiest way to remove the meat from the lobster tail) is to simply break off those flat flipper-y things on the end of the tail, then simply PUSH the meat out the other end!!
