    Irishcolleen's Note:

    This is one of my very favorite Italian pasta dishes. I serve it with crusty french bread for dipping in the sauce, with a side salad of baby mixed lettuces, spinach, and grape tomatoes. The recipe is from my late mother's collection. :) Very quick and easy to prepare, using canned chopped clams.

    1. 1
      Heat olive oil in saucepan and simmer on low for about 2 minutes. Add butter. When butter is melted, add garlic and let simmer for another 2 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and heat thoroughly, but do not allow to boil, because clams will get tough. Serve over hot linguine with freshly ground black pepper. I also like a little grated parmesan cheese on top. Enjoy!

      This was delicious, and super easy. The only problem I had was finding such a large can of chopped clams. I can only seem to locate 6 oz. cans, so I used 2 10-oz. cans of baby clams and 1 6 oz. can of chopped clams, with all their liquid. It turned out perfectly. We enjoyed this over whole wheat linguine (to minimize the guilt). I will be making this again. Made for Pick A Chef Fall 2009.
