This has become one of our favorites - I use the entire 1# box of linguine adjusting the other ingredient amounts as well. I use baby bella mushrooms and cut back to only 1# of asparagus.
I always sub soy nuts for pine nuts in this recipe because they are much cheaper. It still tastes yummy! Soy nuts can be found in the bulk grain section of your supermarket.
Is there a good/satisfactory substitute for pine nuts? I've tried but I just don't like them. Thanks!
This was a very simple and delicious meal to cook. To add a bit more flavor - I added about a cup cubed pancetta to the pan after I heated the oil and then added the pine nuts and garlic.
Even my very carnivorous husband enjoyed this dinner. Fresh-from-the-garden asparagus helped!
Finally got around to making this tonight. So easy and delicious! Husband and my young children loved it. Will definitely add to my "easy weeknight favorites" file.
This is so delicious, I make it atleast twice a month! One thing I suggest is to use an entire box of linguine and a 1/2 cup-3/4 cup of olive oil. The pasta tends to be a little dry with only 1/4 cup. And I also LOAD in the pine nuts (you can never have too many!) and use Pecorino Romano instead of Parmesan. Enjoy--this dish is perfectly simple and delicious!
What a grate product pine nuts are, a source for pine nuts or pignoli nuts there are American organic grown they are superb in-shell raw or shelled raw there web sight is www.wholesalepinenuts.com a simple comment to let you know you don't have to buy importer pine nuts any more. Mike
