my favorite brand

This is a good quick meal.  I like to serve it with a side of cooked greens, like the kale and broccoli shown below.


2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup olive oil
3 (6.5) can clams  (I use 2 minced and 1 chopped)  DRAIN and RESERVE all the liquid
1 (8 oz) bottle clam juice
1 Tbsp. chopped parsley
1/4 tsp. basil leaves
pepper to taste


In medium saucepan, cook garlic in oil until tender.  Add the reserved clam liquid and remaining ingredients except clams.
Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes.
Add clams; heat thoroughly.
Serve over hot cooked linguine with grated Parmesan cheese (or vegan substitute).
(choose a pasta with crevices, that will hold the clams and juice)

Had this salad at a family gathering and it was a hit with everybody. Tasted just like it came out of my Italian grandmother's kitchen. Bashh
