Feast of the Seven Fishes Dish 5 Linguini with White Clam Sauce

Updated: Mar 21, 2021

This is not a Creole or Cajun dish.  However, clams are traditionally found in one dish during the feast of the Seven Fishes

Fresh clams are not found locally in the waters that surround New

Orleans. They are found along the Atlantic shores of the New England

states. However, this is a favorite dish of mine. It is one that can be

prepared quickly. This is one of the dishes that I cooked a lot when I

was in my teens. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

3 tablespoons Butter

1 tablespoon Garlic chopped

3 tablespoons Flour

3 6.5ounce cans Chopped Clams save juice

1 8 ounce bottle Clam Juice

1 teaspoon Fresh Parsley chopped

1 teaspoon Fresh Basil chopped

¼ teaspoon Fresh Oregano chopped

8 ounces Linguini cooked to al dente

Fresh Parmesan cheese grated

Cook pasta, drain, and return to pot it was cooked in. In a medium

saucepan over medium heat, sauté garlic in butter until golden brown.

Mix in the flour and cook for a few minutes to cook out the flour taste.

Add the clam juice, reserved from cans and bottle, and seasonings.

Cover and bring to a boil. Lower heat to medium-low and simmer

for 5 minutes. Add clams and heat for 2 minutes. Pour sauce over

pasta and toss until the pasta is coated. Top individual portions with

Parmesan cheese.
