Made this last night for supper and everyone loved it. I also sauted the garlic in oil first then added remaining ingredients to the pan. I used half amount of pasta called for and I also halved the butter. Will definitely make again.
This was ok. I added more garlic and chopped basil. I think it would taste better with a white wine sauce and whole clams. I agree with the past review...tasted more like a oily garlic sauce. Not sure if I'll make again though.
This is a restaurant/gourmet caliber dish! It is important to make sure that the clam sauce and Parmesan cheese is mixed well into the linguini noodles for maximum flavor. I added 1/4 lb. of sauteed mushrooms and flavored them along with the clam sauce with some dill. Also I increased the number of cans of the clams to 4; using 2 cans of smoked clams (which made a noticeable difference). I generously sprinkled lemon juice on top which really brought out the taste. Serve this with Italian herb or Asiago Cheese Bread to sop up olive oil clam sauce. I will definitely make this again.
I feel obligated to point out that true italian cooking is rustic you have to keep in mind the origins behind a dish. Linguini with clam sauce isn't supposed to be complicated it's about pasta and clams with a nice rich subtle dressing. I have made this several times and I use 3 cans of minced clams 1/4 - 1/2 a bottle of clam juice more garlic and omit the parmesan. I also heavily salt the pasta water to flavor the pasta and add salt and pepper to taste before combining. I always serve this with a nice crusty italian loaf and I usualy pair it with an Australian Reisling.
This one is a regular around here for a few years now. I usually add another can of clams drained. I like to add heavy cream and thicken with cornstarch if too thin. I also recommend extra garlic and salt if needed. Delicious!!!
I made a couple of changes to the recipe and it was delicious! Both my husband and I agree that the recipe is a keeper. The first change I made was to add an additional can of clams (without the juice though) as suggested by other reviewers. I also substituted chicken boullion for the butter - other reviewers had said the sauce was too buttery and I wanted to cut the calories anyway.
Rating: 2 stars
I can't say that we found this to be anything to brag about. I even added 1/4 cup red and 1/4 cup green chopped bell peppers and 1/4 cup of fresh sliced mushrooms to the saute. Still the result was nothing more than butter and noodles...with a couple of veggies and clams. I would certaintly not serve to company and doubt I will make again.
