Linguine in White Clam Sauce

I haven't made this for so long and it's just so easy, quick, satisfying and fairly economical dish to make. Sprinkle with some parmesan cheese and add a nice light salad and it's a wonderful meal. If you want to get fancy for company, steam some fresh clams open and use them as a garnish.

1 lb package of Linguine pasta
3 - 6.5oz Cans of Chopped Clams
1/4 cup of butter
1/4 cup of Olive Oil
1/4 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup of Chopped Parsley
Salt and Pepper to taste
Parmesan Cheese

Drain your canned clams and retain the juice from 2 cans. Chop the garlic coarse.

In a large skillet, melt the butter and add the Olive Oil. Add the chopped garlic and lightly saute and be careful not to burn it (makes it bitter!)

Fill a large pot with water and when it reaches boiling point add plenty of salt and then your linguine Cook until Al dente - about 8-10 minutes and then drain.

While the pasta is cooking, add the retained clam juice to the butter and oil. Add the wine and cook on a high simmer until it starts to slightly thicken (about 8 minutes). Add in your clams.

An excellent classic Italian recipe. Thanks for giving the details. You can add some tomato which makes the sauce red, and then it originates in a different part of Italy. You know the Italians are serious about their food!
Traditionally this is served without cheese, but since I am Dutch I insist on cheese with everything!!
