Linguine and Clam Sauce With Fresh Basil


This is one of my favorite quick and easy Italian recipes. I have made this recipe for years and it is always delicious. The spices used in the sauce - chili flakes, and Italian Blend herbs - add wonderful flavors, and the completed sauce is topped with fresh chopped Basil which really makes the dish. Superb flavors that come together for a great Italian meal.

Ingredients: 8 scallions, sliced 1/2 cup chopped onion 2 garlic cloves, minced 1/4 tsp chili flakes Two 6 1/2 ounce cans of chopped clams (do not drain) One 14 1/2 ounce can of stewed tomatoes 1/4 cup of dry white wine 1 Tblspn Italian Blend Herbs 3-4 Tblspns Fresh Basil, chopped 4-5 cups cooked linguine 4 Tblspns grated parmesan cheese 1-2 Tblspns olive oil

Stir fry in 1 Tblspn oil, scallions, onion, chili flakes, and garlic. Cook for about 2 minutes. Add the clams, tomatoes (break up the tomatoes into smaller chunks before adding), wine, and Italian Blend and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes. Place the cooked linguine in a serving bowl or plate and pour the sauce over the pasta. Sprinkle the parmesan cheese and the the fresh Basil over the sauce. If desired, drizzle the remaining olive oil over the entire completed dish.
