  1. Looks delicious Julia! I love linguini with clam sauce!

  2. Hi Julia,

    I made your linguine and clam sauce recipe for dinner tonight. I did add a small pad of butter and 1/2c white wine. I also added the crushed red pepper flakes to the sauce just before serving. What a wonderful dinner we had. My husband baked bread last night. Truly a great dinner. I should have made a salad and it would have been an AA+. Thank you for the inspiration. I look forward to reading your past recipes. Wow

  3. Hey Louise, thank you so much for your comments. I love your take on this dish. Sounds mouthwateringly good!
