This is a Taste of Home recipe that I discovered this summer. Makes a simple and very tasty side dish for a variety of main dishes.

Ginger Garlic Linguine

12 oz. uncooked linguine
6 tbsp butter
2 tbsp onion, finely chopped
2 tbsp fresh ginger, minced
2 tsp garlic, minced
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
Parsley or cilantro for garnish

Cook linguine according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute the onions, ginger, and garlic in butter for 3-4 minutes or until onions are tender. Drain the linguine; add to skillet and toss to coat. Sprinkle with cheese and salt. Garnish with chopped parsley or cilantro.

Makes 6 servings.

I decreased the butter from the original recipe and changed some of the spices (it had cayenne, I think). I like this dish because probably 85% of the main dishes I make have either garlic or ginger (and many have both!), so this is one of my go-to side dishes.
