    BoxO'Wine's Note:

    A family member requested this dish after having it at a restaurant. I experimented in the kitchen and thankfully I wrote everything down I did because it was a huge hit. The sauce is light and perfect for angel hair pasta. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

      I wanted something special to make for my new DH for our anniversary and decided this would fit the bill. We sat down to eat and he couldn't shovel it in fast enough! I asked him if he liked it and he snorted and gulped and licked his chops, then proceeded to tell me it's one of the best dishes he has ever had. I would say that's a compliment!! I absolutely loved it so it looks like we will be having it again when lobster goes on sale!
