Review This Recipe
I love making this meal, it is quick and easy, my son loves it and it is light. I make it for lunch weekly.
My family really enjoyed this. I added shrimp and that really set it off.
I make this VEGETARIAN!
LOVE this! Tastes like Heaven. I leave out the 1/2 cup of water and the teaspoon of instant chicken bouillon. Tastes extraordinary and meets my vegetarian desires!
Great, versatile recipe!
As soon as I read the recipe, I went to the kitchen and tried it myself. Not a fan of asparagus, so I took a frozen bag of peppers and onions (red, green and banana pepper trio), sauteed those in olive oil and then continued with the recipe. Also instead of fresh tomatoes, I used 3/4 cup of canned, diced tomates that had garlic and onion in it already. This was too yummy and hit the spot. I can't wait to try it again and mix it up with something different like chicken and/or mushrooms!
I made quite a few modifications. I added more garlic and flour to thicken. I substituted a vegetarian "chicken"cube for the chicken boullion and put in 3/4 cup of drained diced canned tomatoes instead of the fresh. Overall quite tasty. Next time I will add even more garlic (4 cloves total), a bit of white wine and possibly some grilled chicken slices.
Great with modifications
This was a great recipe, though I made some modifications. I added cooked chicken, and also thickened the sauce with cornflour. Overall very tasty.
Simple and nice
I prepared this dish for my family and friends. Guess what? All of them love it. It is very easy to prepare and yet delicious. Adding some flour, like one review suggested, does make the dish much better, so that the sauce can cling on to the pasta.
I made this dish adding Shrimp, and thickening the sauce with a bit of flour. It turn out to be my boyfriend's favorite dish ever. I have to make it at least once a week!
This is a wonderful meal. Add some broccoli and you'll fall in love even more.
A little on the bland side
I made this as a main dish for my family by adding chicken to it. I added the add'l garlic that was suggested in the previous reviews. What I found was the the sauce was too thin to cling to the linguine, and much too bland for our tastes.
Quick and delicious
I loved this, but I added a little more garlic, and a couple fresh jalepeno's. This would be good with any vegetable. Another favorite!
be sure to get skinny asparagus!
This recipe was a nice, light dish and very quick to prepare. My grocer had asparagus on sale, but it was quite thick... so I had some aparagus 'chunks'! I enjoyed making it, and might try it again with broccoli!
