Spinach Linguni With White Clam Sauce

READY IN: 25mins




  • In a heavy skillet, heat the olive oil.Stir in the garlic and cook over moderate heat, stirring constantly, for about 30 seconds.
  • Pour in the clam broth,wine,garlic,parsley,oregano,basil,pepper,salt and lemon juice and boil briskly over medium high heat for about 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • In a large kettle or soup pot bring the water to a bubbling boil over high heat adding1/2 teaspoon salt.Add the linguine or spaghetti and (if you desire add a 1 teaspoon oil),this will keep the pasta from sticking together.Stir it gently with a wooden spoon for a few moments to prevent from sticking together or to the bottom of the pot.
  • Boil over medium high heat, for 6 minutes or until the pasta is to your liking.I like mine a little harder than most when taken from the pot as it's still cooking.Dump into a large colander, draining the water and stirring as you go, this will separate the linguine.Let drain and cover until ready to plate.
  • Add the soft butter to the pasta before serving. Bring the sauce in the skillet to a boil add the clams.
  • Stirring constantly, for 1 or 2 minutes. Then pour the clams and sauce over the spaghetti, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  • Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed. Serve at once.
