Fettuccine With Red Clam Sauce

Fettuccine with Red Clam Sauce

This is a great recipe for when you don’t have a lot of time, but still want a home cooked meal. This whole dinner can easily be made in under 30 minutes, but will taste like you spent a lot more time than that. By the time the pasta is cooked, you can have the sauce ready. Toss the pasta and sauce together and you’re good to go. I often make the more traditional version with linguine- but since I was out- fettuccine was our winner today. You have to be flexible with cooking, especially now.

I wanted to share this recipe because I figure a lot of people could have the ingredients in their pantries already. With access limited to stores, there are certain ingredients that I keep in my pantry. Canned proteins like clams, crab meat, salmon, tuna and assorted legumes all work well for me. Canned tomatoes, tomato sauce or marinara sauce are also staples at my house. Pasta is always in my pantry. I keep Parmesan or Asiago cheese around. I keep parsley and other herbs in my freezer, so I can have “fresh” herbs when needed.

So here is the recipe. Simple and tasty. Enjoy!!!

Fettuccine with Red Clam Sauce

1 T. oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cans, 10 oz. each, whole clams, drained of about half of their liquid
1 c. finely chopped parsley
2-3 c. marinara sauce
pepper to taste
1 lb. linguine
Parmesan cheese, grated

Heat oil in large skillet and sauté garlic until tender. Add clams and parsley and cook over medium heat 5 minutes. Most of the liquid from the clams should cook off. Add marinara sauce and pepper and simmer 5 more minutes. Meanwhile prepare pasta al dente. Drain pasta and transfer to a large warm serving bowl. Toss with the sauce and sprinkle with cheese. Makes 6 servings.
