Tom Sellick's Linguine and Clam Sauce

Martha Price


Remember Tom Sellick? That heartthrob actor from the 1970's and 1980's? This is his recipe, as he prepared it on the now defunct program, "Hour Magazine", starring Gary Collins.
Gary stated that it was one of the best recipes they had ever featured on the show!
I can attest that it is very good! Fast and easy, too!
