Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Made this and it was amazing!! I add a little bit of chunky hot salsa (also drained as much of the salsa juice into the dish as possible) to make it a little less dry, And I added some Cajun seasoning to make it spicier!! Tip for recooking Again it will dry up and not have much flavor, so either you can do the recipe again OR (like i did) just add Hot Chunky Salsa, because the salsa has all the same pepper and onions and spicy flavoring. It's now my favorite quick meal, and even taste good slightly cold (put in microwave for 30sec-1min to recook pasta) YUM

Quicker than i expected too! D

OMG this turned out Amazing!! (I did put a little extra garlic) Also, if your dish doesn't turn out "saucy" enough, you can add Chunky salsa (not too much) while your still cooking Turned out really great ) Yum!

Really enjoyed the flavors in this recipe. Will probably put a little more Old Bay in next time I make this.

Very good and tasty. It was better the next day.

I finally got the reciipe today. Had to get Mr. Food for help. This was out just about 2 weeks befor last Christmas., & I've been looking since January. Thank you so much....

Always remember to save some of your cooked pasta water, its starchy and will help extend the sauce if too dry.

Very tasty! I will make this again!

Going to try this tonight....I'll let you know!!

Well it was easy and tasty. The only thing was there wasn't enough broth. I don't care for a dry pasta. I added 1/2 a glass of wine and about 1/2 cup of cream and only cooked 3/4 lb of linguini fini and it was still dry. I think I'll add vegetable broth to the leftovers and see what happens. Anyone have the same situation....any suggestions?

how can I print recipes from my recipe Box? C. Smith

I didn't get an answer.

From your Recipe Box, click on the recipe title and this will open the recipe. At this point, simply click the PRINT button. Thank you!

My 4-H kids made this tonight. They all loved it. Yummy! Had to use Johnny's Seafood Seasoning because I couldn't find Old Bay Seasoning.

It was delicious!! (I forgot the Old Bay seasoning!!! But it was zoo good...there was none left!!

Looks really good, makes my mouth water!!

Looks delis!!
