A great way to use tinned clams. Linguine is combined with a flavourful clam sauce, which is embellished with courgette and mushrooms. The cayenne gives it a kick. If you don't like spicy food, you can omit it or use far less.
W-a-y too much butter and oil mixture - I just used a scant 1/4 c. olive oil with a dollop of butter. I also substituted fresh sauteed mushrooms for the canned. This recipe can have its heat increased by the addition of a good cajun seasoning. Good recipe to play with. - 20 Aug 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
OH WOW!!!! I never make a recipe without tweaking and the only change I made was to substitute angel hair pasta 'cause hubby's stroke makes linguini and spaghetti harder to wind on the fork. This is absolutely fabulous just as is. Very quick, easy, and affordable. I may cut back on the butter and olive oil as suggested by the first reviewer but if cholesterol is not a problem...make it just as is for one of the best dishes ever! - 03 Nov 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Great recipe! Added a little white wine, but besides that, followed it exactly. Thanks! - 06 Mar 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
