Yield: 6 to 8 servings



Cook pasta according to package directions.

Cook lobster in boiling water until tender, about 12-15 minutes. Chill lobster, then remove and chop the meat.

Heat 1/2 cup oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add crushed red pepper flakes, half the garlic, carrots, fennel, leek, and onion. Cook until soft, about 8-10 minutes.

Add half the wine to the pan and cook until evaporated, about 2-3 minutes. Add saffron (optional), tarragon, and 1 1/2 cups of water. Simmer for 10 minutes.

Add remaining garlic and wine, along with the clams, shrimp, squid, and tomatoes.

Cook covered until the clam shells open, about 5-7 minutes. Add the lobster and pasta, salt, and zest; cook for 5 minutes. Garnish with parsley and serve.
