OMG, we loved this. I did do the steaming of the clams first, took the out and covered them with foil, them preceded with the recipe from step one. I seasoned with salt and pepper then kicked it up with a splash of lemon and a sprinkle of cayenne, this recipe hit the spot for my craving for linguini and clam sauce, absolutely delightful!

I love Linguine with clam sauce and has all the ingredients on hand. I'm glad I did because this is a great recipe for a classic. My only substition was to use whole wheat spaghetti (it's what I had) but equally delicious and satisfying. Thanks for sharing. I'm posting pictures.

Just made this, very enjoyable. I made a few adjustments, mainly used half the wine and only 3/4 cup of cream, still very delicious. Also I used only canned clams as I was too lazy to wait for fresh ones to cook!! Will definitely make again. Thanks for the recipe :)
