These flat pasta ribbons or "little tongues" take to just about any sauce, but they're great in casseroles, frittatas, and
Asian dishes too.
This versatile pasta usually steps out with a savory seafood sauce, but it also works as a substitution for specialty Asian
noodles such as egg and udon noodles, and can stand the heat in a baked dish. Linguine also has longevity; store your dried,
uncooked pasta for up to a year in cool, dry place.
Thai Shrimp Salad with Spicy-Sour Dressing
Like most Thai cuisine this quick-fix shrimp salad hits a lot of tantalizing flavor notes from sweet to sour to spicy. Look
for the hot sauce called sriracha (it comes in mild, medium, or hot) on the Asian ingredient aisle of the supermarket.
Mushrooms and garlic are sautéed in a butter-olive oil mixture and then simmered along with canned clams, white wine, basil,
and other seasonings to make a rustic and satisfying version of the popular Italian classic.
Sun-drenched flavors of the Mediterranean combine to lend this easy pasta supper a lush, rich taste. But there are just seven
ingredients–quartered cherry tomatoes, crumbled feta cheese, olives, parsley, sweet bell peppers, linguine, and salt–so you
know it's fast.
Give yourself extra time here since the brie needs to marinate with sun dried and fresh tomatoes, basil, olive oil, and kalamata
olives for an hour. When you're ready to eat, cook the noodles and shrimp together and toss with the sauce.
Pasta with Caramelized Onion Trio, Arugula, and Mozzarella
Invite company over for this one. The luscious interplay of flavors between sweet caramelized onions, spicy arugula, currants,
and fresh mozzarella harmonize into one mouthwatering wonder. No one will miss the meat; that's guaranteed.
Adding cooked linguine to a vegetable-rich frittata helps make it more a more substantial breakfast or brunch entrée. It's
also great for a light lunch since a mixture of eggs and egg whites keeps calories low.
A homemade meat marinara that simmers on the stove for 30 minutes and a rich cream cheese-sour cream mixture are alternately
layered with cooked linguine. It's a baked casserole that's sure to go down in the comfort food hall of fame.
