Unless you actually separate the chopped clams, it may be a little difficult to measure your exact portion of clam meat, so just estimate to the best of your ability. This recipe may be used as a Meal 4 on the Remedy Recipes format, along with a side salad.

Linguine with clam sauce was always one of my favorite Italian dishes. Simple, yet bursting with flavor. This version is also just as simple & just as flavorful!!! We hope that you enjoy it!!!

Mangiare, Piaccia! Eat, Enjoy!
