      I can't believe that I have never reviewed this sensational recipe. I make this often, and always to rave reviews. It's real comfort food and very quick to make. It reheats well in the microwave, so it's nice to have some leftovers. I finally took a photo. Thanks so much for posting.

      Made for 1 serving (for my DS) using 16 ounces Gnocchi in place of the linguine, 3 tablespoons Flavoured Aromatic Herb and Fruit Oil for the olive oil, 1 1/2 tablespoons pine nuts and parm. Delish!

      This sure was easy and very tasty - not to mention quick and delicious. I was feeling like something light for dinner this evening and this really went down a treat and took only the time the pasta needed to cook! Quite an elegant dish too, it would be as at home with a simple week night meal as it would at a dinner party. Thank yo louisette69. Enjoy your time in Australia!!
