Linguine with Clams

Obviously, this is not Linguine. Nor is it
clams... What this is though is dessert! Courtesy of
our dear, dear friends over at Whole Foods!

These are my little chatty Clams - Night
two! Soon to be his Linguine with clams...

First we need to prepare our Linguine... I boil mine for four minutes
under the package directions since the Pasta will continue to cook a
little in the white wine and Garlic sauce I use to cook the clams 

Speaking of clams... They're still mocking me from
over there on the plate, which I find Fascinating!

By the way, I'm baking some Cookies this week! It's a design
featured during one of Martha's cookie-week shows just
before Christmas. Here's a little hint for you... Can you guess?

Back to our Clams... After the butter Melts into
the olive oil, I add a small bottle of Chardonnay

And then, the Clams!

I'm pretty sure this is Not where the
phrase, Happy as a Clam comes from!

Although I admit they do kinda Look like they're smiling...

He just came into the Kitchen and said this looks
more like Screaming to him. I stand corrected!

After the clams scream or Smile, depending on your point of view on such
matters, it's time to add the slightly underdone Pasta to the clam broth. To that,
add a pinch of coarse kosher Salt and a few turns of the Pepper grinder

And broccoli, because that was his Request of me this evening

Add the clams back into the pan to Warm them through, and then...

Plate it!

Finished with a squeeze of Lemon and some freshly grated parmesan

You guessed it... Clams night two and I'm sticking with my chicken!

Tonight it's garlic-Basil chicken...

Because I prefer not to be Mocked by my dinner!
