Linguine With White Clam Sauce

It sounds too simple to taste as good as it does.

2 Tbsp. Butter
4 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
3 Cloves Garlic, Minced
1 Can Clams
1/3 Cup Parsley, Fresh, Minced
8 Ounces Linguine, Cooked and Drained
1 Cup Parmesan Cheese, Grated

1 Melt butter in a sauce pan. Add extra virgin olive oil and lightly sauté the garlic.


2 Add the liquid from the clams and parsley to the garlic and simmer for 3 to 4 minutes or until the parsley is done. Add the clams and just heat through. Do not overcook the clams or they will be tough.


3 Pour the clam sauce over the linguine, top with the parmesan cheese and toss to coat the pasta.

This is so easy to make that now you have absolutely no excuse for not preparing dinner for your family. Just be sure to use the “good” Parmesan cheese, not the pre-grated stuff. You will notice the difference.
