25 Linguine Recipes (+ Easy Pasta Dishes)

Looking to add some delicious new linguine recipes to your recipe rotation? This list has you covered!

Linguine is long-cut pasta that’s thicker in width than spaghetti but not as flat and wide as fettuccine.

It’s a really versatile noodle and can hold up to almost any kind of sauce.

Whether it’s seafood pasta, a takeout copycat, or a classic, you can find the perfect pasta in this roundup of linguine recipes. 

1. Shrimp Scampi with Linguine 

Shrimp scampi is one of my favorite ways to prepare shrimp. 

First of all, I’ll gladly enjoy pasta any day of the week. Scampi is lemony, buttery, and garlicky.

Serve this shrimp scampi linguine with some crusty garlic bread. Just be prepared, you probably won’t have any leftovers. 

2. Parmesan Garlic Linguine 

I love this pasta dish for busy weeknights. This recipe calls for just a few simple ingredients and it’s so easy to make. 

You might also be surprised by how delicious and flavorful the sauce is, despite being made with cream cheese.

The garlic and parmesan take this simple sauce into something simply incredible. 

3. Linguine with Lemon & Tomatoes 

A light and fresh pasta dish is always on my list of go-to meals in the summer. This lemon and tomato pasta is delicious and so easy. 

The tomatoes are savory and acidic and the lemon adds a tart brightness that ties everything together. 

4. Pasta with Creamy Mushroom Sauce 

I think mushrooms are so underrated. They’re savory, meaty, and they soak up any flavors they’re cooked with. 

This pasta dish is packed with mushrooms and a flavor-packed cream sauce. It’s filled with flavors of garlic, lemon, and parmesan. 

This pasta is great for any meal and the mushrooms make it special enough for date night

5. Linguine with Lemon Garlic Sauce 

This pasta with lemon garlic sauce is so comforting. I mean, when is a bowl full of carbs not comforting, right?

I love this sauce and the simple ingredients in this recipe. Lemons, garlic, parsley, and cheese make the most delicious sauce.

You can even add some veggies or protein and it’s just as tasty. 

6. Linguine with Clams 

This is a seafood lover’s dream. Linguine with clams is one of the tastiest seafood pasta dishes around.  

Tender clams and garlicky white wine sauce are a match made in heaven.

This pasta dish is surprisingly easy and affordable, so don’t miss out on this elegant recipe. 

7. Creamy Ground Turkey Pasta 

My freezer at home is always stocked with ground turkey. It’s a super versatile ingredient, and I can always rely on it for any quick meal. 

This ground turkey pasta is so quick and delicious. It’s made with a fantastic cream sauce, sun-dried tomatoes, and spinach.

It’s colorful, flavorful, and an instant favorite. 

8. Pasta with Egg and Cheese 

The most time-consuming part of this whole recipe is boiling the pasta. Can it get any easier than that?

This recipe is similar to a carbonara in its use of eggs as a sauce.

However, instead of bacon for extra flavor, this recipe uses garlic. It’s a welcome take on a classic and it’s definitely a new favorite of mine. 

9. Salmon Pasta with a Creamy Garlic Sauce   

Salmon isn’t usually a protein that I would pair with pasta, but this dish is so good. 

The creamy garlic sauce coats the pasta perfectly and the salmon flakes apart in the dish, so you get a little with every bite.

If you like salmon, I definitely suggest trying this recipe as soon as you can! 

10. Linguine with Spinach and Sun-Dried Tomato Cream Sauce 

I love this creamy pasta with sun-dried tomatoes.

The tangy and savory flavor of the tomatoes is really delicious with the rich and creamy cream sauce. 

If you want to add some protein you can add chicken, shrimp, or even some Italian sausage.

I’ve tried this recipe with grilled shrimp and it’s to die for! 

11. Linguine with White Clam Sauce (Instant Pot) 

If you haven’t tried using an Instant Pot yet, I think it’s time you start. It makes almost any recipe a one-pot recipe.

Most of the time, it cuts cook time by a significant amount. 

Use chopped clams for this recipe so you won’t have to worry about shells.

It’s surprising how easy this meal is, and it only cooks for about 5 minutes!

12. Stir-Fry Noodles 

Pasta is not reserved for Italian dishes. This stir-fry noodle dish is relatively quick to prepare, and it’s even better than takeout!

The chicken, veggies, and noodles all get a healthy dose of seasonings and sauces.

I love making this stir-fry because it’s a fantastic way to eat more healthy veggies and loads of protein. 

13. Shrimp Scampi Pasta with Asparagus 

I think asparagus is often a forgotten vegetable but it works so well in pasta dishes.

This scampi is the perfect carrier for this bright green veggie, and it’s so tasty with the shrimp. 

You can never go wrong with butter and garlic. The lemon adds a brightness to it that cuts the richness of the butter.

14. Easy Chicken Linguine Alfredo 

Pasta Alfredo is one comfort food dish that will always have a piece of my heart. The garlicky, creamy, perfectly-coated pasta is heavenly. 

Add some chicken on top for protein and to make this dish filling and satisfying.

Kids and adults both love this dish and all of its rich and tasty goodness.

15. 30-Minute Lobster Fra Diavolo 

Lobster always feels like it’s meant for a special occasion but this pasta can definitely be enjoyed any day.

It only takes about 30 minutes to prepare and doesn’t take a lot of skill in the kitchen. 

The sauce in this recipe is spicy and delectable.

It’s the perfect complement to the buttery lobster tail and tender pasta. This recipe is a must!

16. Thai Chicken Pasta 

This Thai chicken pasta is similar to a Pad Thai but with linguine instead of traditional noodles.

The sauce is a spicy peanut sauce, and it’s so good. 

Pad Thai is one of my usual orders at our local takeout restaurant.

But sometimes, it’s nice to make something at home that’s even tastier!

This spicy and salty pasta dish only takes about 20 minutes to make, so it’s faster than takeout, too!

17. Green Pasta 

Just like the name suggests, this pasta is a really tasty way to eat your greens!

The sauce is made from avocados, peas, and fresh herbs. It’s so flavorful, and the avocados provide a creaminess that is just heavenly. 

Plus, this dish only takes 10 minutes to make, so it’s easy to throw together on a busy night.

18. Tuna Pasta with Olive Oil and Garlic 

I might be in the majority, but I genuinely love tuna salad, so I had to include this recipe. 

This pasta is nothing like your mom’s tuna salad.

The sauce is mostly garlic and olive oil, so the sun-dried tomatoes add even more flavor to this dish. 

This is a really unique and tasty pasta and a great way to use up your pantry stash of tuna!

19. Easy Thai Noodles With Peanut Sauce 

These Thai noodles are sweet, spicy, and super scrumptious. 

I think the red peppers are wonderful with these saucy noodles.

Top them with peanuts and scallions for added flavor that will keep you coming back, bite after bite. 

20. Linguine Bolognese 

Bolognese is a super rich, meaty pasta sauce. This recipe includes a ton of added vegetables that are pretty hidden.

It’s perfect for those who are veggie-hesitant or just if you need to add a few more veggies to your diet. 

You can also use almost any meat for this sauce so use what you have on hand.

I guarantee it will still result in some empty plates and full bellies. 

21. Lo Mein 

This is another takeout makeover with lots of veggies and your favorite protein. 

This sauce is delicious and you can add any vegetables you want. Just toss them in and the sauce, and the noodles will do the rest of the work.

22. Creamy Pesto Pasta with Shrimp 

This pesto pasta is a dreamy combination of pesto pasta, Alfredo, and shrimp scampi.

It’s a buttery, creamy, cheesy pasta with pesto added in. 

It’s perfect for any day of the week and is super satisfying and delicious.  

23. Crab Linguine 

Crab, or any shellfish, can be quite expensive but sometimes it’s worth the splurge for a heavenly dinner like this crab linguine.

This recipe makes up for it by being so easy to make. 

The sauce is light but the flavor is not. I think I’ll be adding this to my dinner recipe rotation permanently. 

24. Garlic Butter White Wine Shrimp Linguine 

Garlic butter, sage, and white wine make this dish absolutely incredible.

I’ve included quite a bit of shrimp pasta recipes on this list, but this one might be my favorite. 

The sauce is creamy, luscious, and flavorful. It’s a restaurant-quality recipe that is super easy to make. 

25. Butternut Squash Carbonara Pasta 

Carbonara is a fantastic dish on its own but this pasta is a wonderful seasonal variation.

This recipe for butternut squash carbonara is similar to traditional carbonara. 

Roast the butternut squash and then puree with the pasta water.

Then, combine the puree with the rest of the sauce ingredients.

It’s really a spectacular fall twist on an already delicious pasta dish.
