Tempt My Tummy … Linguine with Clam Sauce

by Lisa on April 15, 2013

Until recently, I had never had linguine with clam sauce and definitely never tried to cook it.  I figured it was a complicated recipe and did not want to bother…. Boy was I wrong!!  This is a quick and easy recipe.  Do you have a group of people coming over for dinner and not much time to prepare?  Or, maybe just dinner for your family, and everyone is hungry and in a hurry…. you need to try this recipe.  This linguine with clam sauce recipe takes about 15 minutes – TOTAL!  And, to make it even better… my 5 1/2 year old daughter LOVED IT!  WOO HOO!  This will become a regular at our home.  Just add the linguine, and cans of whole baby clams to my pantry staple list…and I will be good to go!

Easy Linguine with Clam Sauce

Linguine with Clam Sauce


  • 1 box linguine
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped shallots
  • 2 to 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 (10-ounce) cans whole baby clams, drain the juice and save for later!!!
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 8 ounces clam juice (use from the drained cans of clams)
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan or Romano


  1. Cook linguine according to package directions until al dente.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add shallots and garlic and saute 2 minutes, until tender. Add clams and saute 2 minutes. Add oregano, salt and pepper and stir to coat. Add clam juice, chicken broth and dry white wine and bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes.
  3. Pour clam sauce over drained linguine, add parsley and toss to combine. Top with Parmesan just before serving.

So easy… I hope you will try it and see you have a new quick and easy recipe to add to your recipe repertoire.   Whip this up and serve with a Caesar salad and crunch french bread…. now that is a great meal. 🙂

I’m guilty of not bothering with cooking things if I feel they are too complicated. Often, we are totally wrong! Glad you found a recipe your family enjoys! Thanks for hosting…

Linguine with Clam sauce is a big favorite in my family. I think you are so right people think it is hard to make, not at all. I use jar clams often so you can actually have the ingredients on hand. Thanks so much for the party.
