Enjoyed this, thank you Kate, I didnt up the jalapenos, since DH doesnt enjoy too much heat. For my own taste, I might well do that another time. An easily prepared and pleasant supper dish, made for PRMR tag game.

Easy, and quite tasty! Apparently I reduced my sauce too much, or maybe eight ounces linguine was too much for the quantity of sauce, because the pasta absorbed all the sauce! I added one teaspoon minced garlic to the sauce, and garnished with fresh basil. Next time I'll add some orange zest too, for a bit more concentrated orange flavor ~ Made for Summer Photo Tag 2012.
