30 Minute Easy Clam Linguine

0D10F47F-3E69-461B-8388-6163F131B7F2

This is one of the first recipes I ever created….decades ago. I have tweaked it over the years to make it what it is today. It is a simple and quick meal and one that my family has always loved. This can be made in under 30 minutes because you make the clam sauce while the pasta cooks. I always double this recipe as it is wonderful the next day.

  1. Love clam linguine but my sauce is much lighter just garlic, parsley, white wine and olive oil (no soup, cream, butter or parmesan) plus I use fresh clams. However, dishes which use store cupboard staples like these are great.
