This is my version of a copycat recipe from a wonderful Italian restaurant in Annapolis, MD, MARIA'S SICILIAN RISTORANTE. We fight over seconds in this household!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring pot of water to boil. Salt heavily. Add linguini. Cook to al dente, drain.
  2. Drizzle oil in large skillet, aprx. 4 rotations. throw in onions and saute on medium for about 2 minutes.
  3. Add garlic, basil, salt to taste and 1-2 tsp butter and saute until onions are soft. You do not want to burn the garlic so watch temp accordingly.
  4. Add tomatoes and linguine, toss until heated then add mozzarella. Heat until cheese begins to soften.
