Although many Italian restaurants serve linguine alle vongole with fresh clams in the shell, you can replicate the briny-sweet flavor of this dish at home with convenient and readily available canned clams. The chopped clams are quickly cooked along with onion, garlic, and parsley, meaning this white clam sauce is ready in about 10 minutes—less time than it takes to cook the pasta.
This sauce is perfect tossed with hot pasta but is also delicious as a pizza topping. Top with freshly grated Parmesan cheese, if desired, and serve the dish with a tossed green salad and crusty bread to sop up the juice.
