Clam Sauce with Linguine

Clam Sauce with Linguine


"This is a super fast and easy recipe. One of my favorites. Even my kids love it. Though sometimes I use 1 1/2 pounds of noodles. Fettuccine can also be used. Tastes even better with fresh baked rolls or French bread and a garden salad. For the special occasion have a nice glass of red wine with it."

I made it exactly like the recipe says. I will not make it again. It was edible but too much like a canned sauce. All the other reviewers changed the recipe. I would suggest you do the same....

This is just a basic starter recipe of which you can adjust to your liking. Being Italian, and my wife and I liking this dish, I can make some recommendations. First of all you should add a can,...

Very good and sooo easy! I loved the flavor, but the sauce seemed a bit too watery with all of the clam juice added, so I stirred in the parm. cheese while it was cooking to thicken it up a bit...

This was a fantastic dinner for my husband and I. Since kids don't like mushrooms, it has become our favorite for when it's just us. Get pre-sliced mushrooms and this is FAST.

This was a big hit with my dinner guests. I served Ali's Amazing Bruschetta (also Allrecipes) as an excellent appetizer. Per others' reviews I made these changes: 1 extra can of clams w/juice,...

I cooked this dish twice with fettuccine, made changes to this recipe for a healthier dish. Used olive oil instead of butter to saute garlic and mushroom and used milk and flour to thicken the s...

This was really good. However I did add a splash of white wine which I think is key. So fast and easy, I'll definitely make this again.
