I love this recipe because it has fairly common ingredients, doesn't call for wine and is very flavorful!

Made this for my wife for her birthday yesterday along w/ grilled tuna w/ Cajun butter topping. I doubled the garlic, added jumbo shrimp and chopped a thick slice of Vidalia onion to sauté. There was 6 adults at the party and we used 1 lbs of linguini and it was just the right amount. The other 2 couples left w/ the recipe. I would say that rates a 5 star!
