Linguine with White Clam Sauce

(Serves 2-3)
Linguine with White Clam Sauce
Linguine with White Clam Sauce

8 ounces linguine
2 (10 ounce) cans whole baby clams *
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 large cloves garlic, minced
3-4 anchovies, chopped
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 cup chicken broth **
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped


Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil.
Cook the linguine for 2 minutes less than the recommended cooking time.
Put the clams into a strainer to separate them from their liquid.
Reserve both the clams and the liquid.

Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add the garlic, anchovies, thyme and red pepper flakes.  Saute 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently to blend the ingredients.  Add the reserved clam juice and the chicken broth.  Bring the sauce to a simmer.

Drain the partially cooked linguine and add it to the sauce.  Add the reserved clams.  Cook 2 more minutes to allow the linguine to absorb some of the sauce.  Remove from the heat.  Season with salt and pepper and stir in the chopped parsley.  Serve with Italian bread or ciabatta bread.

*  You may reduce this to one can of clams if you like less clams in your sauce, but add additional chicken broth to compensate for the loss of the clam liquid.

** Substitute white wine if desired, but we like it with the chicken broth.
I love Linguine with White Clam Sauce, and this is my favorite recipe for it. This recipe uses
canned clams so you can easily make it for a quick evening meal with ingredients right out of
your pantry. This recipe also includes some chopped anchovies in the sauce that add a special
depth of flavor. Don't be afraid of tasting the anchovies, they melt right into the sauce and just
heighten the flavor.  If you like a spicy, garlicky clam sauce, this is the one for you.
