Linguine With Red Pesto Clam Sauce
20 mins (prep 10, cooking 10)

My favorite pasta dish is Linguine Alle Vongole or linguine with clam sauce. This quick version uses tomato pesto which adds a really nice flavor to the dish. If you can’t get tomato pesto, you can use basil pesto. Big fan of clams? Use 2 cans but only liquid from 1 can. The trick to this recipe is to make the sauce while the linguine cooks so that it’s all ready at the same time. Buon Appetito!
