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.
