Recipe created by Vanessa Seder for Maine Lobster Now®

1. Place Boursin cheese in a food processor and add the lemon zest, parsley, olive oil, lobster meat, salt and pepper, and pulse until the lobster is very finely chopped about 20 more times.

2. Ready a small bowl of water and two packages of wrappers. On a clean work surface, spoon about 1 tablespoon filling into the center of each wrapper.

3. Use your finger to dab some water around the rim of the wrapper, then top with a second wrapper and press hard to form a tight seam. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining filling and wrappers to create 32 ravioli.

4. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a rolling boil, add the ravioli and cook in batches until they float to the top, about 3 minutes per batch. Transfer the cooked ravioli to a large platter and drizzle with a bit of olive oil to prevent sticking. Reserve ½ cup pasta cooking water, set aside.

5. Heat ¼ cup olive oil and garlic in a large skillet until the garlic is fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes and reserved pasta water and cook until simmering and the juices slightly thicken about 8 minutes. With heat off, use tongs to toss in the arugula until just wilted. Toss in the basil and season to taste with salt and pepper. Pour the sauce over the top of the ravioli and serve
