Linguine With White Clam Sauce

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Carmen B.

This is a lighter tasting version if you add milk instead of cream, but is still not for the diet weary.

I love this recipe and make it on a regular basis! I always keep a few cans of clams in my cupboard and use milk instead of cream so the ingredients are always in my house. It's quick to make - boiling the water and cooking the pasta takes me longer than making the sauce. It's great when I'm in a hurry or when I haven't been to the grocery store for a while!
