All-Clad Recipe Blogger Contest: Linguine with White Wine Clam Sauce

I was asked several weeks ago to participate in an All Clad Blogger Contest and now I am in the Top 5! I need YOUR help to make it to the final round. Please visit this link and vote for my dish!  I was sent a 10 inch All Clad Stainless Steel Frying Pan and I had to come up with a "one pan wonder" that would knock the socks of off the judges and my fellow followers. I thought long and hard about what to make and it did not take long for me to decide on one of my favorite foods - pasta! I have spent the winter months making hearty, comforting pasta dishes so I knew it was time to lighten things up. It was time for a seafood pasta that was sure to be a crowd pleaser. After all, how can you go wrong with a simple white wine and garlic sauce?

You Will Need

1/4 cup olive oil
2 tsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 cup white wine
1 cup salted water
15 little neck clams
2 1/2 Tbsp unsalted butter
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 lb linguine, cooked al dente
3 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1 tsp dried oregano
Freshly grated Parmesan for topping

    Here We Go

    Heat oil in All-Clad 10” Stainless Steel Fry Pan over high heat

    Add garlic and cook for roughly one or two minutes

    Add crushed red pepper and oregano and cook for another minute
    Add white wine and salted water and cook for about 3 minutes

      Add the clams, cover the fry pan and cook for 5-7 minutes or until clams open (be sure to discard any that do not open)

        Remove the clams with a slotted spoon and set aside

          Bring the liquid that the clams have cooked in to a boil over high heat
          Add the butter, salt, pepper, parsley and pasta to the fry pan
          Return the clams to the pasta

            Toss with tongs
            Serve in bowls and top with freshly grated Parmesan cheese
              Serves 2
              Happy Feasting!
