Linguine With White Clam Sauce

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Gwen35

The original author of this recipe altered it to reduce the fat and calories. I have had it for a while, but have not tried it yet. It does sound good, though. It yields four servings with one cup pasta and about 1/2 cup sauce for each.

I made this for my roommate and he likes it very much. He just wanted more garlic. Since I do not eat clams I can only base it on his word.
