  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 red bell peppers, thinly sliced
  • 6 green onions, chopped
  • 2/3 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 pound linguine
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts


  1. Heat oil: Begin by heating the olive oil in a heavy large skillet over medium-high heat.

  2. Sauté peppers: Add the sliced red bell peppers to the skillet and sauté until they are crisp-tender, which should take about 4 minutes.

  3. Add green onions: Next, add the chopped green onions to the skillet and continue sautéing for an additional 2 minutes.

  4. Transfer vegetables: Once the vegetables are tender and fragrant, transfer the mixture to a bowl and set aside.

  5. Prepare sauce: In the same skillet, pour in the dry white wine and cream. Allow the mixture to simmer until it thickens, approximately 3 minutes.

  6. Incorporate cheese and vegetables: Mix in the grated parmesan cheese and all but 1 cup of the sautéed vegetable mixture. Stir well to combine.

  7. Simmer sauce: Let the sauce simmer for an additional 2 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  8. Cook pasta: Meanwhile, cook the linguine in a large pot of boiling salted water until it’s just tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally.

  9. Reserve cooking liquid: Before draining the pasta, reserve about 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid.

  10. Combine pasta and sauce: Return the drained pasta to the pot and add the prepared sauce. Toss everything together over medium heat, adding the reserved cooking liquid by tablespoonfuls to moisten the pasta as desired.

  11. Plate and garnish: Mound the linguine onto plates and garnish each serving with the reserved 1 cup of vegetable mixture. Sprinkle with pine nuts for an added crunch and flavor.

  12. Serve: Your Linguine with Red Peppers, Green Onions, and Pine Nuts is now ready to be enjoyed! Serve it up hot and savor every delicious bite.

Serving Suggestions:

  • For a casual weeknight meal, pair this linguine dish with some freshly baked breadsticks and a side of marinated vegetables from your local deli.
  • To elevate this dish for a festive occasion, start with an antipasto platter featuring olives and roasted vegetables. Follow it up with a refreshing arugula, radicchio, and toasted walnut salad dressed with a zesty lemon vinaigrette.
