We used Homestyle Ragu Hearty Traditional Marinara Sauce for this recipe. Its thick and hearty texture hugs every noodle, and provides a delicious made-from-scratch taste. Thanks to a bold combination of vine-ripened tomatoes, onions and fragrant herbs, you won’t need to add anything to these delicious sauces.

So there you have it another simple yet delicious family favorite.I hope you love my Lemon and Lime Garlic Parmesan Shrimp with Linguine. Dovidenia. XO
