    This recipe was great, fast and easy. I used regular linguini. In the saute, I added fresh, sliced mushrooms, a little less garlic and a splash of white wine. While cooking the pasta, I added fresh, chopped broccoli. This resulted in a more colorful presentation and well rounded meal. Thank you for sharing Catherine!  -  09 Apr 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    I made this yesterday, and my husband is still raving about it. Doubled the garlic (and used fresh of course), and we both squeezed fresh lemon juice over our servings. It was fantastic!  -  04 Mar 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
