I love Linguini with Clam sauce but with tight budgets these days paying $14 for one person makes it just an occasional treat..... Until now! This is definitely a restaurant quality recipe and the only change I made was to double the olive oil and spices (but not the clams) as we like ours pretty saucy. With this recipe and Chef #369715 's Gooey Mozzarella-Garlic Bread we had a great meal for under $10 and in less than 30 minutes.

i made this for dinner tonight, and it was great! the only changes i made, were i used half the pasta, and added 1 ts of cornstarch mixed with a ladle of pasta water to thicken it up a bit, next time i will add a little more cornstarch. thanks so much for posting!
