What a delicious meat free meal. I used spaghetti in place of the linguine, and will definitely keep this as a regular for our meatless meal nights. The skim evaporated milk does indeed make this pasta 'creamy' and its so quick to put together.

I found the evaporated skim milk made the consistency of the sauce a bit odd. It was almost curdled. This wasn't bad, but it wasn't a 5 star meal either. You can definitely tell that it's low fat.

This was good but not great. I thought the evap milk didn't really do enough to the sauce to warrent the use of it at all. Sorry, maybe I did something wrong.
