The Mrs Comes Through With The Lobster Fra Diavolo Recipe She Uses (and modified a bit)

It’s rare that the Mrs finds time in her day to respond for recipe requests but here you go-

She used this recipe (and modified it just a bit)  I like my sauce thick and full of flavor and this was the bomb!

She writes-

I just realized I never sent the recipe…

here is the link. I didn’t use the lobster broth – I basically made the sauce and then added cooked lobster meet at the end.

Hope this helps!
