Sun-Dried Tomato Linguine

We call this “Gus’s Special Pasta” because my oldest child claimed it as his own. It’s cheesy, garlicky goodness and quick to fix. —Courtney Gaylord, Columbus, Indiana

    I loved the simplicity of this recipe. I really enjoyed it, but the tangy flavor from the sun-dried tomatoes and feta were a bit too much for the kids. I would cut the amount of feta next time, or use a different cheese, as the previous reviewer suggested. For my tastes though, I thought it was great. This would be an easy recipe to play around with to suit everyone.

    This recipe was simple, yet very flavorful! I really liked the feta-parmesan sauce... my kids did not. Next time, we will try replacing the feta with mozzarella but overall it was really good! We also used GF pasta....
