step-by-step directions We've Made Cooking As Easy As 1-2-3! printer friendly version 
  • 1
    2 tablespoons Kosher Salt
    In a large pot over medium high heat, combine 8 quarts of water to boil and salt.
  • 2
    4 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    4 cloves Garlic (thinly sliced)
    1 lb New Zealand Cockles (or 24 Manila or Littleneck Clams) scrubbed
    1 tablespoon Red Pepper Flakes
    1 cup Dry White Wine
    In a large sauté pan over medium high heat, heat 4 tablespoons olive oil until hot but not smoking. Add garlic and sauté until just golden, about 30 seconds. Add clams and red pepper flakes and saute 1 minute. Add wine and cook uncovered, just until clams open, 4-5 minutes.
  • 3
    1 lb Linguine
    Add linguine to boiling water and cook to 1 minute short of al dente according to package directions (pasta should still be quite firm).
  • 4
    1/2 bunch Italian Parsley (finely chopped to yield 1/4 cup)
    Reserve 1/2 cup of cooking water, then drain linguine and add to pan. Cook over high heat, tossing occasionally, until linguine is just tender, about 1 minute. If necessary, add some reserved cooking water to keep moist. Remove from heat. Add parsley, tossing to coat. Transfer to dish and serve immediately.
