Linguine With Lemon Clam Sauce

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Emjay99

This is an easy, wonderfully flavoured pasta dish that can be whipped up in no time for an intimate dinner for two. Recipe is easily doubled. I use my non-stick wok as it is big enough for tossing the pasta and sauce together in and the sauce gets distributed better throughout that way.

This was really tasty. I made as written other than I used fresh basil, since that's what I had and I threw in some sliced mushrooms that I needed to use up.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. I usually make this in my non-stick wok.
  2. Heat oil and butter on medium heat and saute onion and garlic until soft and tender, not brown.
  3. Add basil and bay leaf.
  4. Pour in wine, lemon rind, lemon juice and reserved clam juice.
  5. Simmer until reduced a little (by about a third).
  6. Add clams and heat through.
  7. Toss in the cooked linguine a little at a time (don't make the mistake of adding too much or the sauce will be lost!) and lastly add the cheese and parsley.
  8. Serve with more cheese on the side and red pepper flakes (optional) and warm garlic bread.
