Bring this classic Italian pasta dish, Linguine with Clams, to your own dinner table with my simple and delicious recipe!
Ahhh, Italia! A country of romance and molto bene cuisine, especially Linguine with Clams, or, as they say in Italy, Linguine con Vongole!
On the menus of almost every restaurant we visited during our recent trip to Italy, pasta with clams was a featured item. We were thrilled, as this is our all-time favorite pasta dish! It’s a simple creation of clams, pasta, olive oil, garlic and lemon, yet the end result is flavorful and perfetto!
Clams naturally burrow in the sand so they need to be cleaned before cooking. You can remove the sand before cooking by soaking the clams in fresh water for at least 30 minutes. As they breathe, they filter the water and push out the sand and salt. Once they have soaked, use a stiff brush to clean the shell surfaces well.
And we have a simple recipe for homemade bread to sop up the tasty broth!
