Family-Friendly Clam Linguine

Clam Linguine      I don’t know what our family would do without clam linguine! This meal is easy, delicious, and even our pickiest eater manages to enjoy it. The credit belongs to my wonderful Italian mother-in-law. She has a true gift when it comes to anything culinary!

     There are many ways to make clam linguine, and this method works best with my busy schedule. All of the ingredients are things I keep on hand. Because my children can’t have gluten, we substitute the linguine noodles for gluten-free spaghetti.

     I hope you enjoy it as much (and as often) as we do! This is a meal that is even better the next day…and as my mother-in-law says, “mangia bene tutti grosso!”
