Cook pasta shells and remove from boiling water one minute before required package directions. Rinse with cold water, drain again.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a clean bowl, combine egg yolks, Ricotta, Parmesan, one tbsp. parsley, and tarragon. Mix well and set aside.
Clean and pat dry shrimp and lobster. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add shrimp and lobster to skillet, and lightly season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cook for just a couple of minutes and remove from heat. Set aside to cool thoroughly.
Gently fold cooled shrimp and lobster into Ricotta mixture.
Spoon Ricotta and seafood mixture into each shell.
Melt butter in skillet over medium low heat. Add garlic, and cook for a couple minutes, being careful that garlic doesn’t turn color.
