What You'll Need

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (24-ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 tablespoon slivered fresh basil
  • 1 pound linguine
  • 4 dozen littleneck clams, cleaned
  • Parmesan cheese for grating

What to Do

  1. In a soup pot over medium-low heat, heat oil until hot; saute onion and garlic 4 to 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in spaghetti sauce, oregano, crushed red pepper, and basil; simmer on low 15 minutes.
  2. In a soup pot, cook pasta according to package directions; drain, rinse, and drain again. Cover to keep warm.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large steamer or soup pot, bring 2-inches of water to boil. Place clams in steamer basket; cover and steam 8 to 10 minutes or until clams open up. Discard any clams that do not open. Remove half the clams from the shells and stir them into the sauce.
  4. Place linguine in large serving bowl; spoon sauce over linguine and garnish with remaining clams. Grate Parmesan cheese over pasta and serve immediately.
