Grilled Vegetable Linguine with Lemon Butter & Parmesan

This is a lovely spring dish, fresh with the tangy lemon juice and flavorful grilled veggies from the market. I didn’t know what a simple hit I had created the first time I threw this together for our supper until we lingered over the table, trying to leave leftovers for lunches the next day. You can certainly use boxed linguine for this recipe, but it is outstanding with fresh, light, pillowy homemade linguine (all you need is a rolling pin and a knife!). We made it again for our couples supper club (kids too) and everyone loved it, no leftovers were to be had. Grilled Vegetable Linguine with Lemon Butter & Parmesan #ratingval# from #reviews#...
