Clam Linguine

This is definitely a dish for fish lovers. My husband was the first to make this dish and it has been a family favorite ever since. I can even get my children to eat clams in it. In my house, that means something.

Linguine noodles
fresh garlic
can of clams ( I prefer minced clams )
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. butter

In a large stock pan, boil water and add Linguine noodles. I make enough noodles for 6 servings. In a small sauce pan melt butter and olive oil, until combined. Add one finely chopped garlic clove on medium heat, but do not allow garlic to brown. Add juice from clams, oregano, salt, pepper, and basil. Continue heating on medium for 2 minutes. Add clams, and cook until clams are heated through. Usually take another 2 minutes. Plate the pasta and top with clam mixture.
