My Mamma's Red Clam Linguini

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Chef Dine

I ask my mom to make this for me for my birthday every year! Dishes always taste better when somebody else did all the work! :)

I loved this, it's simple and such a wonderful switch from the usual hamburger sauce. I put the pasta on when I began the sauce and they were both ready at almost the same time. I used canned clams (all I can get here) and so, only needed to warm then through when added to the sauce. Also I lightened up on the cayenne and I had a mild blush of heat which was perfect. Dinner was made in under 30 mins and that included making a salad. Bravo Chef Dine for a real treat.
