Hey Ann!

I love pasta, this dish looks great!!! You should submit it to presto pasta! http://onceuponafeast.blogspot.com/2008/01/presto-pasta-night-roundups-2008.html

This was one of the first dishes I learned to cook, too! Same thing -- canned clams, sprinkled dessicated cheese from a can. I still love this recipe -- like yours, with fresh clams -- and, to the horror of Italians everywhere, I've been known to sneak a bit of grated Parmigiano-Reggiano on top when nobody is looking.


*Manila* clams, Ann! Manila clams!! Hee hee. Are you tormenting Jack today? :)
I *love* vongole. Everything works together like magic. I bought canned clams once thinking it would be in the shell (sue me, I was naive), so I made an okay pasta, but there's really no point in making it with canned clams. If for nothing else it looks so dull without the shells!


looks wonderful, one of my favorite go-to easy dishes!


It is a glorious dish and now that I'm living in Halifax which is right on the Altantic Ocean, there's nothing better or easier to find than fresh local clams. Thanks for sharing with Presto Pasta Nights. Hope to see you back in the roundup often.


Oh god, that's one of my favorite meals in the *entire* world, especially with cheese. I love seafood and cheese together, I think the Italians are mental on that one!


there's nothing quite like retail grated parmesan cheese. chalk powder, anyone?


I just did this with mussels the other day. Great minds...


This looks great. Clam pastas always make me think of lazy afternoons and lovely warm weather. :)


your photo is fabulous it has made me put clams on my shopping list and clam linguine on today's menu!


I'm betting Ruth just couldn't say no to such a pasta feast and boy I can see why! Please pardon my drool :).


So easy and I love food that I can get my hands into without being called inappropriate.

BTW - you're not quite ready for the rocker yet.


Ann, you described me a few years back- I thought it was wonderful! lol

Wish seafood was more popular here; to get good decent seafood, including clams, we'd have to drive over an hour away.

Have never seen canned clams or clam juice/stock, but will have to keep an eye out for this!


I love the photo! And this meal was seriously delicious.


I never tire of pasta with shellfish...simply delicious!


I love love love this dish with fresh clams. I have tried to make it myself once but it was a horrible disappointment because I didn't wash the clams throughly enough and it turned out a little gritty. A mistake you only make once but I haven't been able to talk myself into it again.

Love pasta, love shellfish, and what a delightfully easy recipe!


Is bottled clam "juice" the same thing as the clam "stock" called for in your recipe?


Love linguine with fresh clams !!! What a recipe easy to cook.

you make me proud.....that is exactly how to make the perfect clam sauce. I also make it with fresh little neck clams taken out of the shell by my fish monger, and use the fresh juices when they opened them.
