Lobster pasta salad makes an impressive dish for potlucks or barbecues.


  • 12 oz dried farfalle (bowtie) pasta
  • 2 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 2 cups corn kernels (from 3 to 4 ears of corn)
  • 1 1/2 to 2 lbs chilled lobster meat cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh Italian flat leaf parsley, minced
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbs unsalted butter, melted


  • Cook the pasta according to package directions and set aside. Reserve 1/4 cup of the pasta cooking water.
  • While the pasta is cooking, heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until golden, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add the cherry tomatoes and corn and cook another 3 minutes.
  • Add the lobster, lemon juice, parsley, salt and pepper to taste, and the reserved pasta cooking water and stir together until heated through.
  • Combine the cooked pasta and lobster mixture in a large bowl and drizzle with the melted butter.
