Linguine with Spicy Red Clam Sauce

Randy Mayor; Melanie J. Clarke

Canned clams make this no-fuss linguine and sauce recipe supereasy. Of course, you can use fresh littleneck clams, if you prefer. Cook them for about five minutes or until the shells open, and discard any unopened shells. Use less crushed red pepper, or omit it if you prefer a milder sauce. Serve with garlic bread and a tossed green salad.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 cup pasta and about 1 cup sauce)
