Linguini with white wine clam sauce
2 medium clove(s), finely minced
crushed red pepper flakes
¼ cup(s), fresh, finely minced
2 tsp, fresh, finely minced
13 oz, drained, liquid reserved, chopped or minced
- Cook linguini, al dente, according to instructions on box.
- In another large pot, gently heat oil over medium-low heat. Add garlic and red pepper flakes; cook, stirring, for about 15 to 20 seconds, without allowing the garlic to burn. Add parsley and basil; cook, stirring, until coated and incorporated, about 30 to 45 seconds more.
- Add reserved clam juice and white wine. Bring to a boil; boil, uncovered, for about 1 minute. Reduce heat to low and simmer gently until liquid begins to reduce, about 5 minutes.
- Add clams and simmer until just heated, about 30 to 60 seconds. Add linguini and toss until it’s well coated, about 30 to 45 seconds. Serve immediately. Garnish with more chopped parsley, if desired. Yields about 1 1/3 cups per serving.
