    An incredibly fast dish to cook and to eat! Perfect for one.

  2. SLongcoat March 11, 2011 at 1:36 PM #

    I didn’t expect to like this recipe, but I did. My abbreviated version had pecans, cashews, raisins, and orange zest.

  3. jemangepdx March 11, 2011 at 1:36 PM #

    Here’s mine:

    I loved it! I had to make a couple of substitutions (currants for raisins, arugula for the parsley/chives) and I added some chopped red onion. Really tasty! :)

  4. Pachecopatty March 11, 2011 at 1:37 PM #

    We loved this recipe;-) The dried figs and orange zest were the best part.

  5. SoupAddict Karen March 11, 2011 at 1:39 PM #

    Even though I should know better by now, I was stunned at how well these seemingly incompatible ingredients came together. Go, browned butter!

  6. Tasty Trix March 11, 2011 at 1:41 PM #

    I TOTALLY changed this one. And I am SO glad I did!

  7. MsHobby March 11, 2011 at 1:41 PM #

    I made mine with 3 types of nuts.

  8. Jessica of My Baking Heart March 11, 2011 at 1:43 PM #

    I omitted the raisins and figs and it was unbelievable! :)

  9. betsyp March 11, 2011 at 1:44 PM #

    This one was kind of strange. I tried it, but definitely didn’t love it. Glad I adjusted to make a serving for one.

  10. knittybaker March 11, 2011 at 1:49 PM #

    Nothing I’ve ever seen before :).

  11. Miss Kris Kitchen March 11, 2011 at 1:50 PM #

    I would have never thought up adding figs, etc to linguine. I’m glad that Dorie did because escaping to my kitchen and creating this dish was just the perfect, comforting outlet needed on an emotionally hard day.

  12. Lola's Kitchen March 11, 2011 at 1:54 PM #

    This recipe pushed me out of my comfort zone and I’m glad I went with it. The flavors are amazing…so simple and so delicious!

  13. NummyKitchen March 11, 2011 at 1:55 PM #

    Yummy, I used dried cherries instead of raisins.

  14. fakeginger March 11, 2011 at 1:56 PM #

    Wasn’t sold on the idea of this one but I’m glad I went ahead and did it:

  15. kal March 11, 2011 at 2:00 PM #

    We LOVED this! I intend to make it for everyone I know . . .

  16. RedsKitchenDiaries March 11, 2011 at 2:16 PM #

    Gotta say … I liked it okay, but it didn’t blow my skirt up …

    I wonder how it would be if you added some nice, salty proscuitto to the finished dish? for me, it needed something to counterbalance all that butter and sweetness

  17. Create Amazing Meals March 11, 2011 at 2:29 PM #

    What a wonderful reward for trying something new! We served it with Pork Chops & Carmelized Pearl Onions.

  18. yummychunklet March 11, 2011 at 2:32 PM #

    Is there a way to know approximately what time each Friday the LYL will be posted?

  19. Jen @ My Morning Chocolate March 11, 2011 at 2:36 PM #

    I did like this recipe! The dried fruit and nuts were a great addition. I did cut down the butter though and used some vegetable stock instead.

  20. Tasty Trix March 11, 2011 at 2:39 PM #

    Here is the link for Sis.Boom.Blog! Trevor did a very cool thing with this, check it out! (He can’t post from work and the LYL wasn’t up this morning.)

  21. mardi@eatlivetravelwrite March 11, 2011 at 2:42 PM #

    LOVED this!

    thinking about making it with chocolate paste ans making a dessert out of it.

  22. tricia March 11, 2011 at 2:47 PM #

    Loved this – surprising us both. And we love to be surprised – that’s what FF’s are about :)

  23. Newfinmysoup March 11, 2011 at 3:10 PM #

    Since I made this before it was even announced, and had a little extra time on my hands, I also made the chocolate mendiants that inspired the chef to create the Beggar’s Linguine. I love just about anything with pasta, but loved the uniqueness of this recipe and ease in throwing it together on a weeknight.

  24. lindseymilam March 11, 2011 at 3:16 PM #

    We LOVED this!! Will definitely make it again.

  25. flourchild March 11, 2011 at 3:52 PM #

    On my way out of town…I will check outeveryones Linguine when I get home on Sunday!
    This is a very yummy dish!

  26. kudoskitchen March 11, 2011 at 3:59 PM #

    Was a bit nervous about this one but liked it a lot. Was even better the second night as leftovers.

  27. sanya living March 11, 2011 at 4:02 PM #

    I’m glad I made it!

    • enela79 March 11, 2011 at 6:15 PM #

      Your pics are beautiful. I agree there was a bit too much butter but I scaled mine back some.

  28. Susan's Little French Bakery March 11, 2011 at 4:20 PM #

    This was a recipe that I would not have tried without the group. FFWD is a wonderful way to step outside the usual recipe selections. I’m going to try to figure out a way in incorporate vanilla bean into this recipe. LOVE brown butter!

  29. Kayte March 11, 2011 at 4:45 PM #

    Oh, yeah…I think is my favorite so far, so unique that I have truly never had a pasta dish like it before…definitely a repeat!

  30. ebessen March 11, 2011 at 5:15 PM #

    Next time I make this recipe I will use half the butter. Felt it could have been made with less butter and would have tasted just as good.

  31. Vegan Thyme March 11, 2011 at 5:46 PM #

    I smelled caramel corn when I made this. I LOVED this pasta dish. Loved. It.

  32. Marie March 11, 2011 at 6:06 PM #
    Wasn’t sure I would, but I did love this recipe.

  33. enela79 March 11, 2011 at 6:13 PM #

    I love, love, LOVE this recipe!!! Couldn’t believe this combination would work but now I’m a believer! ~Janis

    Beggin’ For More!

  34. gaaarp March 11, 2011 at 7:08 PM #

    Loved this dish! My post is more linguistics than linguine, as I attempted to explaing the beggar-monastic-chocolate-linguine connection.

  35. Jennifer March 11, 2011 at 7:26 PM #

    First for figs, first for FFWD!

    Loved this dish. Already considering adding chicken to the leftovers… and eating it as a post-dinner snack.

  36. lexie March 11, 2011 at 7:34 PM #

    so love this dish~~ perfect combination

  37. Linda March 11, 2011 at 7:54 PM #

    Yes, we did love this dish! I think it was the pearls!

    • LaJuana March 11, 2011 at 8:47 PM #

      Cute! Anyone dealing with babies and puppies deserves pearls! Lots of pearls!

      And I like the idea of adding roasted chicken to this to amp up the protein because I used this as a main dish but more protein would be better. Zing is just the word I used for the addition of chives to my dish. :)

      Tried to leave a reply on your site but couldn’t get it to post…

  38. onewetfoot March 11, 2011 at 8:37 PM #

    A very short post for a very busy Friday:

  39. LaJuana March 11, 2011 at 8:37 PM #

    This dish really surprised me…it seemed to be needing “something” until I added just a bit of chives and then…zing!

    But now it leaves me wanting the chocolate Mediants!

  40. ryanbakes March 11, 2011 at 8:55 PM #

    We were skeptical at first but really loved this!

  41. Elaine March 11, 2011 at 9:19 PM #

    I was also skeptical, but we just love this dish.

  42. laurcl March 11, 2011 at 9:44 PM #

    Like most everyone else, we loved it too. Cut down the butter, but sticked with everything else. Here are all the details:

  43. Bakeawaywithme March 11, 2011 at 9:51 PM #

    I really enjoyed this even though I was skeptical!

  44. franklyentertaining March 11, 2011 at 10:06 PM #

    I don’t know if I’ll make it again – I liked it, but the kids weren’t too keen on it!

  45. Space and Thyme March 12, 2011 at 12:05 AM #

    This was a real treat. Not an everyday…it was so rich! But, I really loved the combination of flavors. I was skeptical too, but ended up really happy with it. Loving FFWD…

  46. Judy22 March 12, 2011 at 12:53 AM #

    My Beggar’s Rotini was unexpectedly delicious!

  47. creolekid March 12, 2011 at 12:57 AM #

    A meal in itself, and would be great out camping in the great outdoors.

    • creolekid March 12, 2011 at 12:58 AM #

      Hey wait, this was 11:57 Central time! I was on time! I protest! ;-]

  48. NYflourpower March 12, 2011 at 1:41 AM #

    Served it with simple grilled chicken. I knew I would love it but my husband said excellent this one’s a keeper.

  49. Ana March 12, 2011 at 3:14 AM #

    Easy and fast, sweet and savory, a different way to serve pasta! Glad I made it.
    Check it out at Sweet Almond Tree.

  50. Karla March 12, 2011 at 8:39 AM #

    Loved it!

  51. katieok March 12, 2011 at 9:17 AM #

    A surprise to say the least; we liked it! Never would have tried this recipe but for ffwd. Next time, I will use orecchiette pasta to hold the sauce better.

    • NYflourpower March 12, 2011 at 3:40 PM #

      I used orecchiette pasta because it turned out to be the only dried pasta in the pantry. It worked perfectly.

  52. MaggieM March 12, 2011 at 2:10 PM #

    great recipe! Loved this, and it’s very easy to adapt for just 1 person, as well as to substitute items on hand.

  53. Beth@omgyummy March 12, 2011 at 4:12 PM #’s-for-breakfast-french-fridays-with-dorie-the-omg-yummy-way/

    Late again but the whole family loved it! And just to switch it up a bit, I made if for breakfast. Tasted great with an extra squeeze of orange juice at the very end as I served it. I also added pancetta after reading some posts here yesterday. So bacon and oj is breakfast, right?

  54. Cakelaw March 12, 2011 at 4:21 PM #

    I have had serious Internet issues, so my link is late but my post wasn’t:

    Loved this.

  55. stephsbitebybite March 12, 2011 at 5:45 PM #

    Such an amazing recipe! Not one that I would’ve made on my own. Thanks FFwD!!

  56. Boneats March 12, 2011 at 9:55 PM #

    This was such a great recipe! So fast and easy and surprisingly tasty. Made it with spaghetti and swapped the pistachios for walnuts. Delish!

  57. cdyost March 12, 2011 at 10:25 PM #

    Wonderful pasta dish, easy and delicious.

  58. katiebe March 13, 2011 at 12:54 PM #

    Better late than never?
    Loved it, particularly with a nice French Chardonnay.

  59. StephIrey March 13, 2011 at 3:23 PM #

    Well, I’m late. Thanks to Anne Marie who missed me. :) Quick and easy…but life just got away from me this week. As they say…better late than never.

  60. Connie March 13, 2011 at 4:52 PM #

    Late again, I spent most of the week at the beach and was not able to cook. I am glad I made this dish.

  61. Zwetschgen March 13, 2011 at 10:06 PM #

    This was good, but not my favorite. I made it last Monday, so I’m not sure how I’m so late in posting. Whoops!

  62. Kate March 16, 2011 at 4:58 PM #

    I made this dish for one! The hubby was out of town. I totally enjoyed my dinner…I am thinking it was the brown butter that pulls it all together…not certain but I totally enjoyed each bite!

  63. Cakelaw March 18, 2011 at 6:12 PM #

    Good, but a little plain for me:

  64. Glennis-CBWA March 19, 2011 at 3:59 PM #

    I finally had a chance to pick up the ingredients and put this one together! What a surprise!

  65. AMInyc March 21, 2011 at 9:54 AM #

    A little late, yes, but OH SO GOOD!
