One fresh or frozen lobster tail weighing 10 to 12 ounces yields just the right amount of cooked meat for this richly sauced pasta dish.
Cook fettuccine according to package directions; drain. Set aside.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet cook asparagus or broccoli and mushrooms in margarine or butter for 5 minutes or until just tender. Add lobster and half-and-half or light cream; heat through.
Add cooked fettuccine to the skillet. Then add Parmesan cheese, 1/8 teaspoon pepper, and nutmeg. Toss until pasta is coated. If necessary, cook for 2 to 3 minutes until sauce is desired consistency. Serve immediately. Sprinkle with additional pepper and serve with breadsticks, if desired. Makes 4 servings.
