Red and poblano pepper pasta w/ lobster

Say that title 3 times!  Like I stated in my last post, Dr. Man and I are moving out of our first home together.  We have boxes everywhere but he left my Wusthof knives behind.  He assumed that I would want to cook something for the last time in the kitchen...he knows me well!  With his purchase of lobster tails and my leftover red and poblano peppers, I knew exactly what I was going to make (sort of lol).  The difficult part was maneuvering through the kitchen without my usual appliances...




Here are our following ingredients:  poblano pepper, red peppers, lobster tails, elbow macaroni...




I lined a pan with foil and placed the peppers in the oven to broil...




I placed each pepper into their individual sandwich bag to "sweat" in order to remove the skin...




While the peppers were "sweating," I placed the lobster tails in a small, hot, salted, water pot.  I removed the tails and moved them to a cold water bath...




I removed the skin from each pepper.  Don't be like me and not wait for the peppers to cool down...ouch!  I packed my blender in a box so I had to use Dr. Man's blender for his smoothies...




I placed a little olive oil in a medium-hot pan, and emptied the sauce into the pan.  I added some heavy cream, but I wish I had some chopped garlic or onions in the fridge...




The sauce thickened while the pasta was boiling in hot, salted water.  I chopped some of the lobster in little bits and added it to the sauce.  Once the pasta became al dente, I added it to the sauce.  I carefully sliced the remaining lobster into chunky strips and added those pieces on top (with a little baby spinach leaf for some color lol)...




A little close-up...




What a beautiful ending to our first home together!  Pop the champagne!
