Fast and Easy Recipe For Linguine With White Clam Sauce 2010-10-01 14:38:08

Ingredients

  1. Coarse salt
    12 ounces linguine
    3 tablespoons olive oil
    1 medium onion, finely chopped
    4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
    1/4 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
    3/4 cup dry white wine
    2 pounds small clams (50 to 55), such as Manila, rinsed and scrubbed
    2 tablespoons butter
    1/4 cup fresh parsley, coarsely chopped

Directions

  1. In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook pasta 1 minute less than package instructions for al dente. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta water; drain pasta. Set aside.
  2. While pasta cooks, heat oil over medium in a Dutch oven or 5-quart heavy pot with a lid. Add onion, garlic, and red-pepper flakes. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is soft, 5 to 7 minutes.
  3. Add wine, and bring to a boil; cook, stirring occasionally, until reduced by half, about 2 minutes.
  4. Add clams; cover, and simmer, shaking pot occasionally, until clams open wide, 3 to 5 minutes. (Discard any that haven't opened after 5 minutes.)
  5. Add pasta to clam mixture in pot; continue to cook until pasta is al dente, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in butter and parsley. Add some reserved pasta water to thin sauce if necessary; season with salt.

Serves 4.
