Treat your family to linguine tossed with lobster and a tomato-wine sauce. If you're pressed for time on meal day, steam the lobsters the night before.
1. In large pot with steamer insert, bring small amount of water to boiling. Add lobsters; steam 8 to 10 minutes or until shells are bright orange-red (lobsters will be slightly undercooked; theyre cooked more in step 5). Let lobsters cool slightly. Holding lobsters over large bowl or 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish to collect juices, remove meat from tails and claws; coarsely chop. Place meat in bowl. Reserve lobster juices and meat separately. (Can be made a day ahead; refrigerate.)

3. To skillet, add reserved lobster juice and tomatoes with their liquid, crushing tomatoes with hands. Reduce heat to medium-high; cook, stirring occasionally, 20 minutes, until reduced and slightly thickened. (Can be made a day ahead and refrigerated.)To serve:
