Yummy. A tasty summer dish - hot or cold. I modified the dish slightly but it turned out well. I used more corn (2 cups) and threw in an entire 19 oz can of black beans. I also used fresh instead of dried basil (1/2 cup). Instead of parmesan I used feta with pleasing results. I also used way less oil (only 1 tbsp). Otherwise pretty tasty.. I'd wait for the summer tomatoes for this dish.:) Read More

Wow!! Kids raved and hubby loved it! I was out of green onions so I added 1/4 tsp dried minced onion. Used rotini for the pasta and of course added a little garlic powder cause everything's better with garlic! Thanks for the great quick recipe. Read More

Really fast and tasty. My husband thinks to make it a 5 star recipe it should have bacon (and really EVERYTHING is improved with bacon). Read More

I have been looking for a recipe like this for a long time. We have go to a resturant that has corn and tomato linguini and I wanted to make it at home. This fits the bill perfectly. I left out the scallions (personal taste) - I will make this often!! Read More
