    I love Linguini with Clam sauce but with tight budgets these days paying $14 for one person makes it just an occasional treat..... Until now! This is definitely a restaurant quality recipe and the only change I made was to double the olive oil and spices (but not the clams) as we like ours pretty saucy. With this recipe and Chef #369715 's Recipe #251583 we had a great meal for under $10 and in less than 30 minutes.

    i made this for dinner tonight, and it was great! the only changes i made, were i used half the pasta, and added 1 ts of cornstarch mixed with a ladle of pasta water to thicken it up a bit, next time i will add a little more cornstarch. thanks so much for posting!

    I hate giving bad reviews, but since I trust other people to do it for me... I made this exactly as written, and even though it sounded delicious, I ended up tossing most of it out after making myself eat 9 or 10 bites (it was what I had available for dinner whether I liked it or not). Even though it's full of onions and garlic and herbs and spices and clams, it's was pretty flavorless. I'm sorry, but it just didn't taste good to me. :-(

    Wonderful! I increased the garlic and added a 3rd can of clams with juice and LOVED this! Added fresh parmesan and it was loved by all!

    I have a similar recipe that I make. The only difference is I add 1/2 cup of chicken broth along with the juice from the can clams and simmer about 4 minutes. Delicious!

    This recipe is sooo good! The only change we made was to use thin spagetti instead of linguine. Next time I will follow kim127 directions and add more clams. I just can not rave enough about how good this is. Fed 4 hungry guys and one hungry girl :) Thanks for the cheap and easy meal!!
