Directions

  • Bring a large pot of lightly-salted water to a boil. Cook the linguine in the boiling water until tender but still firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain, reserving about 3/4 cup of the pasta water. Place the drained pasta in a large bowl.

  • Melt the butter with the olive oil in a large skillet over low heat. Cook the diced onion and white parts of the green onion in the butter and oil for about 10 minutes.

  • Stir the green parts of the green onions, the chicken, thyme, and garlic into the onions and continue cooking until the onions are translucent and the chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 10 minutes more.

  • Stir the reserved pasta water into the mixture and remove from the heat. Season with salt and pepper. Pour the mixture over the drained pasta and toss to coat. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over the pasta and stir.

Simple and comforting. Recipe didn't specify whole wheat pasta but descriptive sentance did. That's what I used. I added a bit more minced garlic like a whole other clove and fresh parmesan. We ate every little bit. Sometimes it dosen't have to be overdone to be a good recipe.

Ehhh just ok we felt it was missing something like flavor. I didn't have fresh thyme so could only use ground. To me it was pretty bland even adding in red peppers

While this is good I can't say that the family was wild about it. The fresh thyme could easily be substituted with basil or oregano if you prefer another flavor. I didn't have the fresh thyme so I used a rounded teaspoon of pesto sauce for each sprig of thyme. Instead of using 3/4 c of salted pasta water to make the sauce I used a smaller amount of chicken broth and then simmered it just a little to get it to thicken. We also didn't think it needed as much Parmesan cheese as the recipe states.

Really good! I'll make again; tweaked it with red pepper flakes and black pepper for heat.

I just made this for dinner and I really really enjoyed it. Such a nice simple recipe. I did make 2 minor changes I did not use the green onion because I didn't have any and I just used some Italian seasoning in place of the fresh thyme. Delicious!

My 3yo and I really enjoyed this. I didnt have any green onions so I used a little extra onion. I also used italian seasoning instead of fresh thyme and added some red pepper flakes. When I added the pasta water it seemed to watery to me so I cooked that down just a little before adding the pasta and parmesan. Delicious!
