When I was younger my neighbor and close family friend used to make linguini with clams. It was such a treat because we never had it at home (my sister is allergic to shellfish).
When I came across a recipe for it on Live Love Pasta I knew I had to try to make my own. I was even more excited when I realized the recipe originally came from one of The Pioneer Woman's cookbooks. I just love Ree so much!
I'm happy to say the recipe was a success! The pictures however are kind of boring - there just isn't much color in this dish and I am not a photographer. Still, it is worth making!
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
- 2 10 ounce cans of clams, drained
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
- 2 tablespoons butter, divided
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 3/4 cup white wine (any kind you like)
- 2-3 tablespoons heavy cream
- juice of 1 lemon
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 pound of whole wheat linguine
- Freshly grated parmesan cheese
Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook the linguini according to the package directions.
**Reserve 1 cup of the pasta water before draining**
Add the pasta and toss to coat. Add the pasta water as needed to thin out the sauce.
Top with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
So easy and so flavorful!! I wouldn't expect much else from a recipe that came from Ree :)
