Linguini With Clam Sauce Ala Giro's

Not much to say about this recipe except it's the best I've ever had. I've posted the recipe as it was given to me, but I have, at times, made a few adjustments to save some prep time and ended up with the same wonderful results. I've use canned clams, minced and whole, bottled clam juice and canned 'ready made' diced tomatoes.

I added roasted red pepers, capers, and lemmon juice. Had to use a can of tomatoes and a handful of fresh cherry toms. Brilliant !!!
