I'll admit it... I'm a n00b in the linux world, but I'm curious to find out if it's possible to run my ASP.NET MVC 3.0 web applications on linux.

There is a whole section on the mono web dedicated to mono-ASP.NET.

Also, you can download (from the mono download page) a linux virtual image with pre-installed mono and use that for experiments and reference.
