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.


¼ cup olive oil

1 teaspoon dried red chili pepper flakes

6 cloves fresh garlic

1 teaspoon fresh sea salt

1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

1 flat of canned anchovies

2 tablespoons thyme

1 cup dry white wine

1 cup clam juice

1 pound fresh clams

1 lemon, zested

1 pound linguini

¼ cup fresh parsley, chopped fine


Saute garlic, pepper flakes, garlic, anchovies, salt and pepper in olive oil on medium-high heat until garlic is done and ingredients are well blended, approximately 5 minutes.

To the sautéed ingredients ADD thyme, wine, clam juice and lemon zest. Cook them well for about 1 hour. Add clams and let them cook for approximately 10 minutes in the sauce. Discard any clams that do not open.

Boil and drain your noodles.

In a large bowl combine noodles and sauce. Sprinkle fresh parsley over your pasta dish.
