  • Start by bringing a big pot of water to boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente.
  • Heat a medium-sized saute (frying) pan until hot. Add oil, and when it begins to shimmer, just before the smoking point, add the onions and cook for 3 minutes over medium-high heat.
  • Add the garlic and continue cooking until the onions become translucent. Please don't let the garlic burn.
  • Add a quarter cup of the lobster stock to deglaze the pan. Add the lobster and the rest of the lobster stock.
  • Continue cooking until the lobster stock is reduced by half or to your desired thickness.
  • Add the chopped basil and parsley. Mount the butter in pieces off the heat. Mounting is where you add butter to a sauce at the end to give it texture, flavor, and a sheen.
  • Cut it up into smaller pieces and add one at a time while continuously stirring. You don't want to add all the butter at once.
  • Taste the sauce and season with salt and pepper.
  • When the pasta is done, drain it and add it to the sauce, mix it all together, and serve.
