ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! I scaled this down to one hefty serving and other than using olive oil and Linguine made as written. I also used a cornstarch slurry to help all those tasty clam pieces stick to the pasta, yummy. Being such a flavorful and quick meal, this will be made often. Thanks Mikekey for posting this fabulous recipe. Made for you're win in the football pool Wild Card Weekend.
Mike, this is one Great dish. Made recipe as written, no adjustments, and we all agree that the flavors and the quick preparation made this a winner. Will definately save. Thank you for another great recipe !!
One word - Fabulous! I LOVE the simplicity of the dish. In the length of time it takes to cook the pasta, the meal is ready. This is one of the best 15 minute meals, I've ever had. I can also see adding scallops and/or shrimp. Maybe a little sundried tomatoes ... LOTS of possibilities! I will be making this dish often!
