  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 cup of chicken stock (alternatively you can make your own lobster stock)

  • ¼ cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped

  1. Cook the lobsters (if necessary).
  2. Boil and drain the pasta.
  3. Boil and drain the peas.
  4. Heat the oil in a large sauté pan, adding the shallots and garlic.
