This pasta goes nicely with any entree. Guests always leave a spot for it on their plates. It's great hot or served cold with fresh herbs from my garden.—Stephanie Moon, Boise, Idaho.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 6, 2014

Really quick & yummy. I also used dried parsley since I didn't have any fresh on hand. Next time I would cut down on the butter. It was just a bit too much buttery for our taste.

I made this with 1/2 lb. linguine. It was awesome! The only thing I would do different is mix in the parsley, salt and pepper before mixing in the Parmesan to keep it from clumping up.

Yummy!! I did things a little differently though. I marinated shrimp and chicken in butter, lemon, parsley, garlic, and salt & pepper for about 4 hours. I then sauteed the marinated chicken and added the shrimp when the chicken was about half-way cooked. Once it was cooked, I added the noodles, rest of the butter, spice, and cheese (double the cheese). This was an amazing dish, I thought I was in a restaurant!
