Fast & Easy Dinner: Linguine With Clams and Artichokes in Red Sauce

Fast & Easy Dinner: Linguine With Clams and Artichokes in Red Sauce

Linguine with clams is one of my all-time favorite meals. While sometimes I indulge in a creamy, cheesy version, I actually prefer a lighter variation like this one that lets the flavor of the shellfish shine. The simple sauce — a combination of shallots, garlic, artichoke hearts, and jarred tomato sauce — comes together in less than 15 minutes. Basil and parsley add fresh fragrance to this luscious pasta.

Sounds delicious, but I'm not sure I'm OK using canned clams.

I love clams and linguine with white sauce. Not the creamy. Saute tons of garlic in olive oil, add clear clam juice or canned clams. If you just add juice add clams in the shell. As they cook, they open. Then go heavy with the crushed red pepper. Serve over linguine. It couldn't be easier. I got this recipe from Anna who used to own Ann's Little Napoli in Savannah, after she retired and sold the business - otherwise she would never have given me the recipe. I used to sing with a group at the Italian restaurant on Friday nights. Anna used to say, "Makea youself at home!" At times she would sing with us in Italian. She was something else - God rest her soul.
