  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 3 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red bell pepper (1 small)
  • 1/3 cup sliced green onions (about 5 medium)
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley or 3 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cans (12 oz each) evaporated low-fat milk
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

    In 4-quart Dutch oven, cook linguine as directed on package. Drain; return to Dutch oven and cover to keep warm.

    Meanwhile, in 10-inch nonstick skillet, melt butter with oil over medium heat. Add garlic; cook and stir 1 minute. Add bell pepper, onions, parsley and flour; cook and stir 1 minute. Gradually stir in milk until well blended. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Cook 6 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until sauce is bubbly and thickened.

    Remove skillet from heat. Stir in basil, oregano and salt. Pour sauce over linguine; toss gently to coat. Sprinkle with cheese.

  • Linguine are long, narrow, flat noodles and are perfect with this creamy sauce. However, if you prefer, you could substitute spaghetti or angel hair pasta.
