Favorite Ingredients Friday (Garlic Linguine)

Good Friday to you all! It's time for another Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe exchange!

As most of you know, I love pasta, so I'm always on the lookout for savory pasta dishes. This one I originally found on the Allrecipes website and it's scrumptious! I usually make this as a side dish.

Garlic Linguine
  1. 1 (8 ounce) package linguini pasta
  2. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  3. 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  4. 1 tablespoon dried basil
  5. 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  6. 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  7. 2 cups chopped tomatoes


  1. Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling water until done. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in large saucepan. Add garlic and cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Crush herbs, and add to the garlic.
  3. Add linguine. Heat through, stirring frequently. Fold in tomatoes. Serve.

I hope you enjoy this side dish as much as I do! Now I look forward to seeing your Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe!

Don't forget to link your specific recipe post link on Mr. Linky so I can see what's cooking at your house!

Oh, and be sure to put the title of your recipe in parenthesis! It makes it so much quicker for me to go back and search for recipes as I build my weekly menu.

This sounds really good. I'll have to pass it along to a friend. She says there's no food in the world that can't be improved with some garlic.

Oh my goodness, this is wonderful. I so love a good pasta recipe that uses "real" herbs and spices and this is so simple. Truly, this sounds like The Olive Garden.

I will definitely make this. Add some garlic bread and a salad and my goodness, what a great dinner!

This sounds super yummy. I don't know if you have caught on but I am a tomato addict...seriously. I eat tomatoes daily in various forms. I keep grape tomatoes on hand just for a snack.

I am sorry I didn't get a FIF recipe posted yesterday. I had my granddaughter and also went to a funeral and then helped with the funeral lunch so it was a LONG had to do our Financial Peace class...very long day.

I too am a pasta lover, this looks great--it would also be great with sundried tomatoes I bet, I'm a sucker for those guys.

Garlic is absolutely my favorite... I even eat it raw sometimes. I look forward to trying this pasta dish. Thanks for sharing.

At 7:15 AM, Anonymous Laura said...

I love pasta and with the tomato touch...yummy. I have to try this recipe.
I wasn't able to participate in the FIF because I didn't have my computer (it's broken) and at work I wasn't able to write. I hope this week I can participate again.

OW - Thanks for the invite a week or so ago to participate in FIF. I didn't make it over last Friday to share a recipe. Will aim for this Friday!
