1 ¼ pound lobster, cooked, cleaned, and dice into large pieces (per serving)
½ pound gluten-free pasta
¼ pound roasted butternut squash
1 small shallot, minced
12 sage leaves
2 ounces butter
2 ounces white wine
¼ ounce year old balsamic vinegar
1 ounce olive oil
Bring heavily salted water to a boil and cook pasta until al dente. Boil lobster and cook through (about 10 minutes in boiling water). Remove from shell and dice into large chunks. Set aside. In a sauté pan over medium heat, add olive oil and shallot. Sauté until translucent. Add roasted squash and 1 ounce of butter. Cook butter until it browns. Add white wine and reduce by half. Add remaining butter, lobster and pasta. Stir and mix. Fold in sage leaves, place on a plate and top with a small drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
