  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the linguine, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta, stirring occasionally, until cooked through but still slightly firm, about 11 minutes. Drain well.
  2. Heat the butter and olive oil in a skillet over medium heat until it begins to brown slightly. Stir in the onion; cook and stir until the onion becomes lightly golden, about 10 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook for 1 minute more. Add the reserved clam juice and wine. Simmer until reduced by half, about 15 minutes. Stir in the Alfredo sauce and clams; cook and stir until heated through, about 5 minutes.
  3. Serve the clam sauce over the linguine, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes.

Very very delicious! I have to say the sauce was really good. The combining of clam juice & wine reduction with the alfredo sauce made the ingredients marry so well. It really pulled the clam flavor all the way through the sauce. I thought at first it was going to be really runny but as it turns out, it wasn't. The red pepper flakes gave it a nice heat at the end, but isn't totally neccessary at all, especially with minor children. The only thing I felt that needed more of...was the clams. my cans were 6.5oz cans not 10 oz so for the clams it's self I used 3 cans and only because it look like sauce with a few pieces. And I totally watched how much reserved clam juice I needed because the cans were a total of 13oz, not counting the 3rd can of reserved juice. But however, I'd make this again in a heartbeat. Very well paired with whole grain Linguine noodles. TY grainie.



Made this last night and I must say: we all enjoyed it. Small change: made the Alfredo myself. Otherwise, recipe is excellent as is. Thanks so much.



Nice easy twist on the boring jarred alfredo sauce. The hubby wasn't overly impressed by it, yet he inhaled it! I would use more wine next time. I topped with shrimp and broccoli. I would make this again.
