It is a Valentine recipe for 4 people.
First off - the clams were expensive! $1 each and 5 of them never opened, so tossed. Anyway, I used white linguine as my market did not have whole wheat. I also substituted red pepper flakes for the chile. The recipe went together quickly. I feel that next time I'll use garlic-infused olive oil and replace 1 T with butter to give the pasta a bit more flavor. Would make again.
