Posted in: Dinner, Lunch, American, Gluten Free, Seafood,

Description

Though the sun is getting lower in the sky, the lobsters are still climbing onto our dinner tables, so that we can still enjoy the essence of summer.  Our Mystery Chef joined us to share a recipe that captures the flavors of the season.  Enjoy the sweet, savory rich taste of a New England summer as the Mystery Chef prepares a gluten-free pasta dish with the best of all ingredients: lobster!  The combination of lobster, butternut squash and butter sweetens summer’s end, and the squash also reminds us that the season ahead has savory recipe treats in store for us.
