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!

We loved this. It was so simple and so fast and I also like how you didn't need cream for this. I halved the amount of butter needed for this and increased the olive oil a bit. I also cut up some jumbo shrimp and tossed it in. My husband wants me to make this often now! thanks for sharing this recipe.
