LINGUINE WITH CLAM SAUCE - DINNER AT HOME

LINGUINE AND CLAMS
DINNER AT HOME 

Celebrated a very special family member birthday with Linguine and Clam Sauce.  Simple, fresh ingredients cooked up in only a few minutes.  Entire meal for three was under $40.  The fresh clams in shell were half of the cost.  Could have skipped these and just used the chopped clams to save money.  While my presentation was less than perfect, the flavor of this dish was excellent.  Adding the small can of tomato sauce really makes a difference and adds flavor.  The red color of the tomato sauce disappears when the sauce is done.  I soaked the clams in water for about one hour.  You will be amazed how much dirt comes out of the clams.  The water was black when finally rinsed out.  This is a dinner that you can make with just about anything you have in the refrigerator.  Easy and delicious.
