Recipe of the Week

I JUST made this. Yes, I know its too late at night to eat pasta but I can afford an extra 500-900 calories a day thanks to breastfeeding. I said I would never list what I ate for dinner as a blog entry but I think that recipes definitely have their place in this blog. Because I LOVE to eat. And I'm married to a big handsome man with a hearty appetite. He already put down three pieces of pizza by the time I whipped up this dish so I have enough for lunch tomorrow. Oh, and use the butter. It makes it super delish. I am quite aware that Italian mothers from the old country would have my neck for the canned clams and dried seasoning, but if you love traditional clams and linguine, this will hit the spot.

Quick Linguine with White Clam Sauce


  • 2 (6.5 ounce) cans chopped/minced clams, with juice
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1-2 teaspoon chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 tablespoon dried basil
  • 1/4 cup (or so) Parmesan cheese
  • red pepper flakes to taste
  • 1 (16 ounce) package Linguini


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions.
  2. Meanwhile prepare the sauce. Combine clams with juice, butter, olive oil,chopped garlic, Parmesan cheese, parsley, basil, red pepper and pepper in a large saucepan. Place over medium heat until boiling. Serve warm over pasta.
