This is just a good, fundamental linguine recipe that we really enjoyed. I can't seem to ever leave well enough alone (no reflection on the chef kymmarie:-) so of course after I added some of my fresh basil to the dish, I also got out some pine nuts and litely roasted them. When they were done, I tossed them onto the linguine and topped it all off with a tablespoon of freshly grated parmesan reggiano. Delicious!! By the way kymmaire, I see you are from North Port. I go down to NP 3 times a year and one of my favorite places to eat a quick meal is at Momma's on 776 heading into Englewood. Contact me if you like. Thanks for the recipe!
