With a lot of love and a few simple ingredients, you've got a classic italian meal!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound dried linguine
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 small yellow onion, finely diced
  • 1 cup clam juice
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced and zested
  • 1/4 cup white wine (we used Chardonnay)
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 pound chopped clams, fresh or canned
  • grated parmesan cheese, to taste

Preparation

Step 1

Cook pasta al dente and set aside.

Step 2

In a large saucepan, heat olive oil over medium heat and sauté garlic and onions for 5 minutes.

Step 3

Add clam juice, lemon juice and zest, and white wine. Simmer for 10 minutes over medium high heat.

Step 4

Season with red pepper flakes (this recipe rarely needs salt) and add chopped clams. Cook until clams are jet heated through, no longer as to avoid toughening them.

Step 5

Toss cooked pasta in the light sauce and serve piping hot with parmesan cheese. Buon appetito!
