This is a good recipe with great flavor but WAY TOO HOT! We love spicy food and eat things many will not touch bc they say it is too hot. I halved this recipe and it still made enough for 4-6 people easily. I used 1/2 T of pepper flakes and this had my mouth on FIRE! I would recommend about 1 TEASPOON or less to start with as you can always add more but cannot take it out! I also reduced the olive oil as there was really no need for so much and my waist thanked me! Thanks for sharing this recipe. We love linguine with clams and adding tomatoes was a good touch- like a middle ground of white sauce or red sauce. I would make again with the reduced oil and reduced pepper flakes and increased garlic.
We love Linguine and clams.Have tried many recipes, but this is the best so far.Did cut back on the pepper flakes,for my sake dh would use 4 tablespoons.I used the baby clams and juice.Next time think will use 1 wine and 1 clam juice.Also found less linguine was better.Was great the next day. Thanks, Zaphro for a keeper
Just like the they make it at our favorite local Italian place.
