Brent's Favorite Clam Linguine

Brent's Favorite Clam Linguine created by Papa D 1946-2012

This used to be my husband's favorite thing to order when we went out for Italian, until I realized I could make it at home in 15 minutes for a quarter of the price. The recipe as written serves two, but I've doubled and tripled it very easily. The whole wheat pasta is just a personal preference, and in the summer I love to use fresh basil and oregano. Enjoy!

    My husband absolutely loved this recipe! In fact, judging by his comments, I'd say it's his favorite new recipe that I've made in awhile. I thought it had great flavor but mine came out way too salty because I used cooking wine (which already has salt in it); entirely my fault! If I use cooking wine again next time, I'll omit the extra salt. I can see this becoming a regular at our house. It's quick, easy, and delish. Would be a nice dinner for company, too.

    This is a fantastic recipe! I was worried the clam taste would be overpowering but it wasn't at all! Very easy to make also. The only changes I made was to use two 6 oz. Cans of chopped clams and added extra lemon juice, other than that nothing. Thank you!

    Made this last night for dinner. The only change I made was I only used half of the red pepper flakes. We really enjoyed this! I would also agree that the Old Bay really adds to the flavor of the dish. A quick and easy meal for a work night, will be making this again and again. Thanks Victoria.

    Excellent recipe! Restaurant quality. The Old Bay Seasoning is the key to the awesome flavor of this sauce, however I did reduce the amount to only 1 teaspoon and left out the red pepper flakes for personal reasons and I feel it didn't impact the flavor at all, other than that made as written. This is a keeper and will be made often. Thanks! *Made for fall 2009 PAC*
