  • 1 ounce dried porcini mushrooms

  • ¼ cup olive oil

  • 10 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes

  • 36 fresh clams, cleaned

  • 2 cups dry white wine

  • 4 tomatoes, cubed

  • 3 (8 ounce) jars clam juice

  • 1 ½ cups chopped fresh parsley

  • 1 (16 ounce) package linguine pasta


  1. Soak mushrooms 20 to 30 minutes in cold water to rehydrate. Dry, and coarsely chop.

  2. Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in mushrooms, garlic, and red pepper. Cook until browned. Stir in clams and white wine. As clams open, remove to a medium bowl, discarding those that remain closed.

  3. Mix tomatoes, clam juice, and parsley into the mushroom mixture. Simmer until slightly thickened, about 15 minutes.

  4. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add linguine, and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.

  5. Return clams to the broth mixture and cook until heated through. Thoroughly mix in cooked linguine just before serving.
