This is an easy, inexpensive, white clam sauce. Try it over any kind of pasta; lemon pepper linguine is especially tasty. Extend the sauce for larger portions by adding in one half cup of chicken broth.

My husband and I are both Italian, so everything I make has to be authentic! This recipe is wonderful. I followed the ingredients as written, (except for using olive oil, of course!!) I know the amount of oil and butter may scare some, but it does make the dish. There are other recipes using only clam juice and wine as the base, but I find them not as decadent with lack of substance (much lower in fat and calories though:). I did sautee the garlic first(tons of garlic!), added crushed red pepper, and thickened it with some fresh parmesan at the end. I know some reviewers used cornstarch and flour, and that may have been good, but I was scared to do it! Anyway, thanks for the recipe!

I used OLIVE oil (1/4 cup), 2 tbs. butter, and 4 garlic cloves. I gave it 3 stars with the vegetable oil-try it with olive oil for a 5 star recipe.

Excellent. I searched all over the site to find the best linguine with clams recipe, and this one did not disappoint. I used half the amount of olive oil that is recommended, simply because the amount of total fat scared the pants off of me. I subbed half of the pasta cooking water for 1/4 cup of oil. I also used fresh basil, and about four cloves of garlic. Rave reviews from dinner party guests. They practically licked their plates. Enjoy!
