This is one of my favorite home cooked meals from my mom.
Something that I crave when I want comfort food
or just to feel like I'm back at home.
It's also super easy and makes a great weeknight dinner.
And depending on how big your family is,
you'll probably have some leftovers for lunch the next day. Bonus!
Linguine With White Clam Sauce
1 lb linguini
1 onion, chopped
2 Tablespoons butter
2 Tablespoons olive oil
fresh chopped parsley
2 cans minced clams with the juice
2 cloves garlic, minced
salt & pepper
Cook the linguini in a large pot of salted water.
Meanwhile, melt the butter and olive oil together over medium heat.
Saute the onion. Add the garlic and cook for 5 minutes.
Add thyme and oregano (I used about 1 teaspoon each) and cook another 5 minutes.
Add clam juice and heat a couple minutes.
Add clams and heat, but not to boiling.
Pour sauce over cooked linguini. Sprinkle with parsley.
