We sold plenty of Linguini with Clam Sauce when I was in the restaurant biz. People just couldn’t get enough of this popular Italian dish.
I use fresh clams for this dish. You can use canned clams but if you do you’ll take away the overall freshness of this dish. Some people prefer the white clam sauce while others prefer the red. So here I basically made the white clam sauce with a little chopped fresh tomatoes for flavor. A true red clam sauce will have the consistency of a thinner spaghetti sauce which is just as delicious with the clams and linguini.
I prefer the white sauce and most of the people we sold too ordered the white sauce. So here’s my version of Linguini with Clam Sauce which I hope you enjoy.
