Pasta with Clam Sauce Recipes

Try this delicious seafood sauce with your favorite pasta! The sauce freezes well for another meal.


Total Time: 20 min.

Yield: 6


  • 1 lb shrimp, cooked and shelled (60-70 count works well)
  • 2 cans (large) clams (or 4 small cans)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cups  dry white wine
  • 1 tsp chopped garlic
  • 2 pinch Italian seasoning
  • juice of 1/2 lemon 


  1. Add the onion and oil and cook until soft. 
  2. Add the wine, juice of the lemon, the juice of the cans of clams, as well as the Italian seasoning and garlic.  Simmer until it is 1/2 the volume.  Check taste for salt.
  3. Add the shrimp and clams.  Do not bring to a boil. The clams and shrimp are pre-cooked, and they well get tough if you get it too hot.  The shrimp and clams at room temperature, and will warm up in the sauce. 
  4. Pour over hot pasta.
  5. If you like a thicker sauce add a few teaspoons of cornstarch mixed with a little water. Cook sauce for a few more minutes.
  6. Once you make it, adjust the seasoning to your taste.  I like a little more lemon.
  7. It freezes well.  Do not boil when you reheat it, just heat to warm.  The heat from the pasta will help reheat it.

I've had linguini with clam sauce in several restaurants throughout Italy, and no two have been the same. The best versions are simple preparations relying on the distinctive flavors of few ingredients. In this dish the parsley is not used as a garnish - it adds an important freshness to the pasta.
