by Cindy Rippe

Here's a delicious recipe that only takes about 30 minutes to make! My family LOVES this recipe!

I love this recipe because you can make it with canned clams and lots of garlic, wine and butter....how can it NOT be delicious??? And it makes your house smell so wonderful!

Linguini and Clam Sauce

2- 10 oz. cans of clams, drained, juice reserved

3 cloves garlic, minced

chopped parsley 

2 tbsp butter

2 tbsp olive oil

2/3 c. white wine

3/4 c. heavy whipping cream

juice of 1/2 lemon 

1 box of linguini noodles

salt and pepper to taste

fresh grated parmesan cheese


Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Cook the pasta until al dente, 8 minutes or so. It will continue to cook when it's in the sauce.

Melt 1 tbsp. of the butter with the olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add clams and garlic, cook about 3 minutes. Stir in wine, cook for 3-4 minutes, until it has reduced.  Lower the heat. Add lemon juice and the remaining butter, stir to combine ingredients and cook a few more minutes. Add cream, parsley, salt and pepper to taste. Cook until heated through. Pour the sauce over the bed of hot pasta, toss, top with fresh grated parmesan cheese, serve with lemon slices.
