This dish has long been a recipe staple of mine (inspired by my mom’s recipe) especially when I have access to fresh, local clams!  It’s elevated by the tasty, briny clams but so simple to prepare.  Shellfish is one of my favorite ingredients to cook with because of the rich flavors yet being so easy!  The hardest part is typically the preparation but once the cooking process begins it’s really effortless & this dish comes together in no time!

Linguine with White Clam Sauce

Ingredients

  • 1 16 oz. box of Linguine
  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 shallot finely chopped
  • 4-6 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • Red pepper flakes & black pepper
  • 2 dozen fresh, littleneck clams scrubbed clean*
  • 1 6.5 oz. can chopped clams in juice
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1.5 cups white wine
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley chopped
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter

Instructions

  1. Fill a large pot with water & bring to a boil. Once boiling, season the water with a dash of salt & add the pasta. Cook al dente according to pasta directions- drain & set aside.
  2. Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large saute pan; add the garlic & shallot and sautee until fragrant & translucent- about 1-2 minutes being careful not to burn the garlic. Season with black & red pepper (as much as you like) & add in the whole clams, wine, lemon juice, chopped clams & their juices from the can. Increase heat to high & cover; about 5-6 minutes until clams open. Discard any clams that do not open.
  3. Stir in the parsley & butter; add the linguine back to the sauce pan and toss to coat. Serve with your favorite bread to soak up all of the delicious sauce!
