Rated as 4.76 out of 5 Stars
Recipe By:Lorraine Williams
"Very easy, quick and sinfully satisfying. Great with a tossed green salad with vinaigrette dressing."

Ingredients

  • 1 (8 ounce) package linguine pasta
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup minced sweet onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (10 ounce) can baby clams, drained with juices reserved (such as Bumble Bee(R))
  • 1 tablespoon dry white wine
  • 1 (16 ounce) jar Alfredo sauce (such as Classico(R))
  • 1 teaspoon grated Parmesan cheese, or to taste (optional)
  • 1 pinch crushed red pepper flakes, or to taste (optional)

Directions

  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the linguine, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta, stirring occasionally, until cooked through but still slightly firm, about 11 minutes. Drain well.
  2. Heat the butter and olive oil in a skillet over medium heat until it begins to brown slightly. Stir in the onion; cook and stir until the onion becomes lightly golden, about 10 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook for 1 minute more. Add the reserved clam juice and wine. Simmer until reduced by half, about 15 minutes. Stir in the Alfredo sauce and clams; cook and stir until heated through, about 5 minutes.
  3. Serve the clam sauce over the linguine, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes.
