Linguine alle Vongole – the best and easiest homemade pasta with clams in garlic butter sauce. Much better and cheaper than Italian restaurants.

I love clams and I love pasta, so there is no surprise that I love this classic Italian dish Linguine alle Vongole, which means linguine with clams. This is definitely one of my favorite Italian recipes; it’s absolutely delicious, bursting with the natural briny sweetness of the clams, with the garlic butter and herb sauce.
Eating out at any Italian restaurants, this dish can easily cost you $20 or more. While I don’t mind splurging on a wonderful serving of linguine alle vongole once in a while, I wanted to have it as often as possible at home. I take matters in my own hands and make the clams linguine pasta at home. As you can see, my linguine alle vongole recipe is loaded with lots of clams. The sauce is utterly scrumptious with the perfect balance of flavors. Serve it with a glass of your favorite wine and you will have wonderful restaurant flavors at home!
