    Nif's Note:

    My favorite pasta dish is Linguine Alle Vongole or linguine with clam sauce. This quick version uses tomato pesto which adds a really nice flavor to the dish. If you can’t get tomato pesto, you can use basil pesto. Big fan of clams? Use 2 cans but only liquid from 1 can. The trick to this recipe is to make the sauce while the linguine cooks so that it’s all ready at the same time. Buon Appetito!

      We all enjoyed this fast dish very much.
      Done with homemade pesto, fresh oregano and tricolor spaghetti. I added some canned artichoke hearths, beacause I wanted to add some veggies to our meal. All in one it's easy and tasty.
      The nutmeg flavour was a great new touch for us!
      Done for ZWT7.

      This a delicious 30 minute or less meal. The recipe was reduced to serve 2 and a full 10 oz can of clams was used. Instead of the white wine I used additional broth from the clams. The pesto was a homemade tomato pesto. Both of us really enjoyed this served with steamed broccoli and red peppers as a side.
