We can't go wrong with pasta. It makes a super-quick meal and it always tastes good. But tonight let's do things a little bit different. Instead of heating up plain spaghetti sauce, we're gonna sauté clams with garlic and lemon juice for a scampi that's out of this world and ready in no time.
What You'll Need
- 1 pound linguine
- 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
- 5 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 (10-ounce) cans whole baby clams, drained
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
What to Do
- Cook the linguine according to the package directions; drain.
- Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-low heat, melt butter. Stir in garlic, salt, and pepper and sauté 2 minutes. Stir in clams, lemon juice, and parsley; cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until heated through.
- Pour clam sauce over linguine, toss until pasta is coated completely, and serve.
Test Kitchen Tips
- While you're mincing the garlic, mince a few extra cloves and combine it with softened salted butter. Spread that over a loaf of French bread that's been cut in half lengthwise. Wrap it in foil and bake at 350 degree F. while preparing the scampi. When it's done, you'll have the perfect side!
