Linguine and Clams (Linguine alle Vongole)

  Linguine and Clams has a long tradition in Italian cooking, largely due to the fresh flavors of clams, garlic, and parsley.   Linguine is a form of pasta that is wider and flatter than spaghetti, but not as wide as noodles like fettucine.   Translating from the Italian it means “little tongues” and originated in Genoa, Italy. It is best combined with seafood, as compared to spaghetti which usually accompanies meat and tomatoes.
