Linguini and Clam Sauce- My Dad’s Favorite

This is last night’s dinner . . . I wanted to give you the recipe.  This is my dad’s favorite dinner, and I would have to say it’s mine too.  You would love it, and it’s so easy!

The last couple of times I’ve made this, I’ve added two or three big handfuls of arugula to the finished dish, and now I wouldn’t have it any other way — the arugula adds lightness to the pasta and a delicious flavor, SO GOOD!  I also add an extra can of clams. I make my crunchy, garlicky, buttery garlic bread like my dad taught me (what he would call the right way and I would have to agree!): melt a stick of butter;

thinly slice two or three cloves of garlic and put them in with the butter.  Cut a long loaf of French bread into 1/2″ slices.  With a pastry brush, slather the butter/garlic on one side of the bread, be sure to leave two or three garlic bits on each slice.  Broil it until toasty brown, put it in a basket wrapped in a cloth to keep warm.  Our salad was cut-up cherry tomatoes, drizzled with a little olive oil, chopped fresh basil, and lots of salt and pepper. It went perfectly with the pasta, was wonderful!  So here is the recipe girlfriends!  It comes from page 100 of Heart of the Home.

Have a wonderful day! xoxo
