Excellent pasta! I grow and freeze many herbs, and this was the perfect recipe for them. It had a wonderful fresh taste, and was very easy to make. I added a little more red pepper flakes and I used fettuccine, as that is our favorite. We really loved it!

This was a delightful recipe, s'kat, that my husband and I enjoyed very much. I grow my own fresh herbs and love cooking with them. The combination and proportion of herbs was perfect and gave the pasta a fresh, exciting taste. I used linguine noodles but I think any long, thin pasta noodle would work well. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
