“Easy, cheap, and delicious weekday meal. The ginger adds a nice touch. This can also be served as a first course at a dinner party (halve the ingredients). Recipe source is the 'Good Food' magazine (April 2004). Use spaghetti instead of the linguine if you like, or try the sauce with Asian style noodles.”
