This was very tasty and easy. I didn't have pancetta on hand so I did use bacon and I thought it tasted great! Otherwise, I followed the recipe completely.
Wow, my husband and I tried this tonight and it was phenomenal. We treated it as an appetizer, so we did not use the linguine, but the taste was phenomenal. I did make a few modifications. I added 2 T. of Butter (just because I think clams need butter), added 3 chopped green onions, and increased the amount of red pepper. I served with toasted baguette bread with melted butter, garlic powder and dill weed. Fantastic! Definitely 5* for us, and we will be making it again.
This is soooo delicious! Thank you for posting. I did not have shallots :-( but it was still amazing. I am sure the shallots will make this a 6* recipe. All I added was about 1 tbsp of lemon juice, only b/c I thought I'd read it in the recipe, but didn't. A really nice twist on plain old Linguine with clam sauce.
WOW! All of my favorite things, this was very good. THANKS!
Very easy, flavorful recipe! I've made this several times now and the sauce is absolutely delicious, dh & I both enjoyed this. I made no changes at all. thanks!
We enjoyed this very much. I did sub mussels for the clams because they were too expensive here in Holland. There is nothing else I did different, I made it exactly as written.
