Mediterranean Linguini with Clam Sauce
This Mediterranean Linguini with Clam Sauce recipe originally came from a small village on the Italian Mediterranean Coast, from a small restaurant that is very popular with the locals. It is a dish they flock to the restaurant daily for a serving of.
Once you have made this dish you will understand why. I have referred this recipe to my friends time and time again. It’s a recipe that I don’t only recommend, I try to be more convincing than that. Honestly, you owe it to yourself to make this terrific dish.
