Reviews for Asparagus Linguine
"Loved this, excellent flavor and beautiful presentation. Will be making again. Thanks for sharing the recipe!"
"Asparagus didn't blend into the pasta very well."
"This was good. I added chicken to add protein to the meal."
"Neither my husband or I are a lover of asparagus, but it's one of the few veggies my almost 2 year old will eat. So, I gave this recipe a try and we all LOVED it!!! I've made it 3 times already since trying it, and I'm making it again for dinner tonight. I didn't have linguine the first time I made it so I used shell pasta instead. Awesome! It was like the shells scooped up the flavor and it was fabulous. I've used other pastas since, but we still prefer shell pasta the most!"
"This was Sooooo GOOD!! It is definitely a keeper. I didn't have linguini so I used rotinit (spinach, carrot & wheat). It looked so nice w/all the colors!!Yummmm!!!"
