A touch of lemon juice and fresh mint livens up jarred marinara sauce in this quick and healthy pasta dish.
Cook linguine in a large pot of boiling salted water until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes or according to package directions.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until softened, about 1 minute. Add tomatoes and lemon juice and cook for 1 minute more. Add marinara sauce, bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes.
Remove from heat; stir in parsley and mint. Season with salt and pepper. Drain the pasta and serve topped with sauce.
