    Dr. Jenny's Note:

    DH and I made this tasty shrimp linguine for lunch today and thought it was very good. We have plenty of leftovers. This is from the July 2010 "Bon Appetit."

      Great Great Lunch ! I did make a couple of minor adjustments. I left out the jalapeno, wished I didn't, used 1/4 of an onion, and used Feta cheese. The flavors were very very nice. I was going to make this for dinner, but made for lunch for the 4 of us. All in all a very satisfying lunch. Tagged and made for Rookie Tag.
