Linguine with Clam Sauce

Bryan thought this recipe was ok, but I liked it. We mainly decided it was a keeper though because it was a non meat recipe. We have plenty of those!

Linguine with Clam Sauce

Makes: 8 servings
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 14 minutes

1 pound linguine
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
3 cans (6.5 ounces each) chopped clams
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup plain bread crumbs

1. Cook linguine 11 minutes. Drain and return to pot.
2. Meanwhile, heat 1/2 tablespoon oil in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; sauté 5 minutes.
3. Strain liquid from clams and add liquid to skillet, reserving clams. Add parsley, oregano, basil, pepper flakes, salt and pepper to pan. Simmer 5 minutes then stir in clams; cook 2 minutes. Stir into pasta in pot; toss to mix. Cover to keep warm.
