Classic Linguine is a super easy Italian dish to make. It takes little cooking skill to make and, in time, it only takes about 45 minutes. Being able to cook this dish is an easy way to impress others. It will also hopefully encourage you to continue cooking and advance into more complex dishes.

Prepare the Chicken

  1. Cut the fat off the chicken breast on a cutting board.
  2. Cut the chicken into quarter sized pieces.
  3. Season the chicken with an Italian marinate or salt and pepper.

Prepare Shrimp

  1. Thaw shrimp with cool water and refrigeration. Since you are using frozen shrimp, you'll need to thaw them under lightly running cold water in a colander for 1 minute.
    • If your shrimp aren’t already detailed, remove the tails immediately. Afterwards, you can place the shrimp in your fridge to thaw them completely.

Cooking Shrimp and Noodles

  1. Cook chicken in a large fry pan. Preheat your pan over medium heat for 30 seconds. Once your fry pan is warm, dump the chicken in the pan.
  2. Leave the chicken untouched for 2 minutes until it is lightly golden. Continue cooking over medium heat for 6 minutes, stirring occasionally until the chicken is no longer pink.
  3. Boil the water over high heat with a lid on. The size of the dish will determine how big a pot you will need.
    • A meal for four people requires a large size pot. Fill the pot with warm water, then place it over an open flame with a lid on the pot. Sprinkle a ton of salt into the water and wait for the water to boil. You can do this while cooking your chicken.
  4. Cook noodles in boiling water without lid. When the water comes to a complete boil, cook ½ pound of angel hair pasta for 4-6 minutes so the pasta is not too firm not too mushy. Tape the box of uncooked pasta closed and store in the freezer for later consumption.

Final Preparation

  1. Prepare the garlic and olive oil mixture. On a clean cutting board, dice two garlic cloves. After dicing the garlic, combine it with ¼ cup olive oil and stir. Set this mixture aside as you’ll add it to other ingredients in future steps.
  2. Combine shrimp, garlic, and olive oil into frying pan with chicken. Complete this step over medium-low heat. Since the shrimp and chicken are already cooked, you are heating them up with the garlic and olive oil.
  3. Drain noodles in colander. In a sink with warm water running, dump your noodles into a colander until they are separated from the hot water. Before removing them from the colander, give it a few shakes back and forth ensuring that there is little water remaining in the colander.
  4. Mix ingredients with noodles. Easiest way to mix everything is in the same pot you cooked noodles in. After combining the two, toss and stir the dish with tongs guaranteeing everything obtains the garlic and olive oil flavor.
  5. Finish the dish by garnishing with grated Parmesan cheese. The amount of cheese added is under eaters’ discretion. A few shakes to top it off is more than enough but feel free to add as much as you like.
  6. Serve and enjoy with your family and/or friends.
  7. Clean everything that touched raw chicken and shrimp thoroughly. This step is very important concerning the health of you and others. Handling these ingredients raw can increase the chance of food born illness in future dishes. Washing the dishes with warm water and soap will kill the bacteria before it can spread.


  • 1 large chicken breast (about 3/4 lb)
  • frozen precooked shrimp
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 1lb box of uncooked angel hair pasta
  • Kraft Grated Parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper


  • If you don't want to cook a half pound of pasta, figure out the serving sizes for each person. An easy trick is to make a ring with your thumb and the first knuckle with your pointer finger. Your serving size equals the number of noodles you can fit in the ring.
  • Be careful as you do not want to burn your garlic in step 6. The stench of burnt garlic is very unsettling and is hard to get rid your home of the smell.


  • Make sure you cook everything thoroughly. Consuming raw or undercooked meats, poultry, seafood, shellfish, or eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness.
