this recipe was great! i didnt have terriaki sauce so i made my own ( 1/2 cup soy sauce, one half cup sherry, and 2/3 of a cup of japanese rice wine, 2 tablespoons of sugar. let it boil first, then simmer at medium- low heat for about 15 minutes or until its reduced to 3/4 cup.) i also used WAY less butter, and about half of the amount of cashews. i made it into a meal by adding terriaki steak, and it was awesome! my parents also loved it.

very good but in my opinion too many nuts next time I will reduce by half

Wow, this was delicious and SO easy! :) i fried up some chicken with it, since it was our main course, used WAY less butter to fry up the cashews (and used about half the amount of cashews), and added some garlic powder and black pepper to the teriyaki sauce, which gave it a nice kick! I served it with steamed brocoli. My husband raved about it, and we will be having it again! :)

I doubled this, only I used a package of coleslaw mix instead of more pasta.I did not double the nuts, as I chopped the cashews in my Pampered Chef hand chopper, which I sprinkled over the linguini. I also added fresh diced garlic in the "sauce". Awesome dish. And very simple. My whole family loved it.

Wonderful Flavors! I used brown rice instead of linguine. Used about 3tbs of butter total and a splash of olive oil. Added 2 cloves of crushed garlic to sauteing cashews. I'll definitely make this again. The cashews were wonderful!

This is a very tasty side dish! I served it along with veal scallopini.

We really enjoyed this as a meatless dinner. I added some snow peas for more vegetables. It is a great one pot meal (plus a colander). I did add just half of the butter that was called for and used whole wheat pasta to make it healthier. This is a keeper for a quick and easy weeknight meal! Thanks!
