Zucchini Linguini is a quick and easy stovetop meal that the whole family will love. The first place winner of a $5 dinner contest that we ran years ago, this entry submitted by Amy O. was a favorite of the judges for both taste and ease of preparation. You'll love how quickly it comes together, and you can even use the same pot for cooking the linguini and preparing the rest of the dish.
