Recipe Comments & Reviews

My V-E-R-Y fussy family is difficult to please, to say the very least. Surprisingly though, this dish was a huge hit at the appetizer table this Father's Day. Personally, I liked it SOOOOOO much that I played around with different versions of this- one was more popular then the next.
1- Used this recipe, except I used SAUSAGE AND GROUND BEEF!
For the rest , I followed the pasta butter, cheese and basil part of this recipe
2nd I had left over chicken francese (lemon butter chicken) and chopped them up and put on top of the pasta. Then I finished it off with with mozzarella (no ricotta cheese or red sauce
3rd- I made with shrimp and crab scampi-(garlic &white wine sauce) this one was a HUGE SUCCESS! Again, I substituted the beef and tomato sauce with shrimp in scampi sauce and topped it with fresh mozzarella cheese (well patted down before cooking, to drain any excess water possible)

Basically, I found that you can treat the linguini base as you would any other PIZZA and add your favorite toppings from there! GOOD LUCK & ENJOY!
This is exceptional. Very unique and very tasty. Easily customize the filling to taste. Husband loved it and said it would be hard to top this one.
Similar to lasagna, but with a different look! Was a hit at the
dinner table
This recipe is awesome! I've made it several times, however I double it and have friends over. It's also easy to make the night before and pop it in the oven when you get home.

Chocolate’s complex flavor brings out the sweetness and tanginess of fruit, mellows the heat of peppers, and comes alive when introduced to a little bit of salt. The real question should be, “What can’t you dip in chocolate?” More ...
