One-Pot Lemony Caprese Linguine from my new cookbook – Healthy One Pan DinnersYou won’t believe this recipe until you try it for yourself. A one-and-done pasta dish with all the fresh flavors of summer. It’s a little-known fact that fresh mozzarella adds plenty of protein. Linguine fini is a thinner cut of linguine. You can also use regular linguine or spaghetti, but you will need to adjust the cook time according to package directions.
