"Great dish and inexpensive to make. I would double up on the ingredients next time, since this recipe only calls for a half of box linguine"

"Very good and easy to make. I made it without the linguine as we are on a low carb diet and this worked perfectly with the plan."

"I want to make this for my family but i'm not that experienced with cooking or changing the recipes to accommodate a bigger number of people. I want to make it for 6-7 people instead of 4 any suggestions on how much to increase the recipe?"
