Notes

If you're single and pathetic like me, you're probably making this for yourself with 3 leftovers for lunches.
Microwaved linguine is disgusting, I recommend only tossing the sauce with one serving of linguine for the dinner, then portioning the rest into containers and making the other 3 portions of linguine as needed.
