This is a pasta my dad threw together a couple of years ago. It's one of those things you can trow together quickly. The best part is you can serve as a main dish or a side dish. If you want you can add shrimp, clams, or chicken. You can adjust the ingredients to your taste. Sometimes will use 3 cans of tomotos. Warning, I love to use fresh garlic, so if you are going out into public bring gum!
- 1 lb linguine
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 -4 fresh garlic cloves (chopped)
