An uncle on my Dad’s side of the family enjoyed dabbling in the kitchen. Don’t know what was his source of inspiration but he came up with a very simple recipe for white clam sauce that has been a favorite of ours.
If you enjoy linguine with white clam sauce, then try this….
1 (10oz) can minced clams
¼ c. olive oil
½ c. butter
¼ tsp. pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
½ tsp. oregano
3 Tbsp. (heaping) dried parsley
3 Tbsp. onion-chopped fine
1 Tbsp. grated Romano cheese
Combine all ingredients and heat in a sauce pan. Pour over cooked linguine. Makes 2 servings.
P.S….Don’t forget a nice Italian red wine and some crusty bread for dipping!
