Clams and Linguini is a classic Italian pasta dish that is a family favorite. We often serve it as a first course before a fish dinner for a party. Add a loaf of warm Italian bread and it is a meal by itself.
This is a simple recipe to make. Use good ingredients like fresh clams, and extra virgin olive oil and you can’t miss. I like to use a lot of minced fresh garlic sauteed lightly in olive oil and then reserve about a teaspoon full of raw garlic that I add at the very end along with a splash of extra virgin olive oil. Some red pepper flakes and fresh parsley to garnish make for a festive dish with a lot of visual appeal.
