Great recipe. Fast and easy to make. For those who like it spicy adding a bit more pepper gives it an extra kick. I also used regular butter which eliminated the need for the 3/4 teaspoon salt. Love the lemon flavor, gives the dish an extra something. I've made it several times and everyone loved it!

Easy as 1-2-3

I made this recipe and it was my first time making linguine. I must say it was really easy to make. I am use to southern cooking....when I do cook...this was a change of pace and absolutely DELICIOUS! I added some Old Bay Seasoning instead of salt and some scallops with the shrimp (I'm originally from Baltimore, MD) and got many compliments from my family! I loved the flavor and the ease of making it! I will be cooking this dish again!
