eats: Lemon Chicken Linguine


Lemon Chicken Linguine @mamamissblog #chicken #lemon #pasta


We are not really a pasta kinda house.  I occasionally eat it, but hubs is not a fan.  I do, from time to time though, add a little bit of orzo…but when I think pasta…orzo is not what I envision.  I see spaghetti, fettuccini, linguine…real pasta.  So my point being, I really don’t think we’ve ever had spaghetti as a family, or fettuccini, or linguine…i.e. we’re not a pasta house :)

Well, a couple of weeks ago that changed!  I made this Lemon Chicken Linguine and it was AMAZING!  Hubs, I believe, is a pasta convert.  We may just have a future as a pasta kinda house ;)
