Last year I failed to make our lobster bisque before Janice went back to LA. This year I didn't want to make that mistake. However, we didn't have any fresh bread today so I modified the recipe in Eating Our Way to Civility: A Dinner Party Guide for lobster bisque and turned it into a soupy pasta sauce. If I had time to make a fresh egg fettucini (recipe also in the book), it would have even been better.
You'll have to get a copy of the book for the main recipe, but here's how I modified it.
I used a one cup of heavy whipping cream, and about 2 Tbs of cognac in the sauce/bisque.
To plate, I put a mound of pasta in a pasta bowl, ladeled 2 ladles of the bisque onto the pasta and sprinkled grated Parmesan cheese on the top.
YUM! We had it for a late lunch and it seems to have been enough for dinner too!
