"Surely there is something off about the mozzarella cheese measurement -- 3/4 cup usually does not equal 6 oz. It would be more like 3 oz, since an 8 oz package of cheese usually makes 2 cups. So that threw me off and made me question all of the other measurements in the recipe, plus I wanted to make a little more than the recipe called for, so my measurements and proportions weren't exactly as written. I think I ended up with too much linguine in particular. But, it was good. Not sure if I'll make it again."

"This is a show stopper. Make sure that you don't rinse the noodles after you boil them though. The sauce will definitely not be as good. I pair this dish up with Pecan Crusted Salmon (found on this website) (the recipe with brown sugar)."
