1 - large lobster tail (8 to 10 ounces)
2 - cups small broccoli florets
Nonstick cooking spray
3/4 - cup chopped red sweet pepper (1 medium)
1/3 - cup chopped onion (1 small)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a 4-quart Dutch oven cook pasta according to package directions, adding the lobster tail for the last 7 minutes of cooking and adding the broccoli for the last 3 minutes of cooking.
