from Everyday with Rachel Ray. This is a nice, lightly flavored pasta dish. In my opinion, a pound of dry pasta is more than enough for four people - I use less.

I made these with thawed cooked mussel meat, as there are very few recipes for these. This turned out to be very good. I would make it again, but next time I would use half the linguine. I had to make another batch of sauce to give the linguine sufficient flavor. I would also add a cup of veggie or chicken broth to increase the amount of sauce and the flavor. Otherwise very good.

Simply wonderful! Other than halving the recipe, I followed it exactly--well, except that I doubled the lemon peel. I love lemon. The flavors are outstanding and the preparation so very easy!

Now this is a GOOD recipe! So flavourful - perfect for company but so easy to throw together after a hard days work - which is just what I did. I also doubled the red pepper flakes and loved the black pepper on the leeks as they cooked. I used a dry Pinot Grigio which brought out the flavours wonderfully. I have no clue how much my pasta weighed as I have a handy gadget that looks like a painters palate that has holes in it for different pasta serving sizes - I did it for three which is a circular bunch that measures about 1 1/8 inch in diameter. Sorry - no photo - my camera card decided to have a fatal error :(
