This is such a cool recipe! It's like a tuna noodle casserole combined with linguine in clam sauce. Great after-work dinner (which I always love).

An excellent dish - simple and flavorful! The taste and texture of the correctly-cooked pasta are maintained, rather than turned gummy and bland in the oven. Naturally, the quality of the clam chowder used has a great impact on the finished product. A very nice change from the ordinary, though popular, cassarole.

Fantastic last minute throw together with stuff I had in my pantry. Thanks! My family was extremely pleased! I didn't have capers or even olives, so I just put in a touch of vinegar. Tasted great!
