Dad's White Clam Sauce
40 mins (prep 20, cooking 20)
8 ingredients
4-6 servings
This is a family favorite; my sister loves to request it for special occasions. It's a very garlicy, "brothy" sauce that's best sopped up with lots of crusty bread. Traditionally in Italy, this is served over linguine, but we like it with small shells so they can hold more of the sauce. Note: do not add the clams until the very end when tossing the hot pasta with the sauce; otherwise they will become rubbery.
