This linguine dish with clam sauce is one of those magical recipes that you can make with mostly pantry ingredients yet the results are impressive and delicious.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain.

Step 2

While pasta cooks, place bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, and cook until crisp. Remove bacon from pan, and crumble. Reserve 1 tablespoon drippings in pan. Add garlic and basil; sauté for 30 seconds. Add bacon, lemon juice, and the next 4 ingredients (lemon juice through clam juice); cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Step 3

Combine the pasta and clam mixture, and toss well. Sprinkle with cheese.
