    I made this for dinner tonight and it was absolutely had a freshness it. I added pressed garlic to the Olive oil and linguine which put it right over the top. It was a restaurantt quality meal (with cobbed corn and seasoned bread) that would have been priced at $12/plate or more. I made it for $4/serving.
