Linguini with Simple White Clam Sauce

I was fixing dinner for this guy who I really liked, for the first time, and he asked for linguine with clam sauce. Well, I didn't have any idea how to make that. I asked at the ER I was working at and another nurse gave me her recipe. I went home and made it, not knowing if I would even like it. Fed the new boyfriend who said It was the best...that man became my husband so it must have worked magic! It has become a staple in our house. My sons like it too.

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

2 can(s)
chopped or mined clams drained save the juice
1 bottle
clam juice
2-3 clove
glaric, minced finely
olive oil
1/2 c
Italian parsley minced
1/2 c
grated Parmesan cheese
1 lb
linguine pasta

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Do all your chopping, I recommend fresh garlic and Italian broad leaf parsley but can substitute regular curly leaf parsley. I use Parmesan that comes grated but you can grate your own. It does not change the measurements.
2
Boil water and put pasta in to cook. Drain and add a bit of olive oil to the pasta to keep it from sticking
3
Heat pan, add enough olive oil to cover the bottom of the pan.
4
Add garlic and clams. Remember the clams are all ready cooked so a couple of stirs to soften the garlic and heat up the clams.
5
Add the parsley and stir a few times until it is a little brighter in color.
6
Stir in the clam juice from the cans and about 1/2 bottle of clam juice and heat up and simmer for about 1 minute
7
Add the pasta. Keep the heat up and stir, add a little more clam juice if too dry.
8
Stir in Parmesan cheese gradually to add some body.
9
Serve with tossed salad and a good Italian bread with dipping oil and a crisp white wine. "si mangia"
