Linguini with Pancetta and Clams
As most of you know I am a pasta lover, I mean who isn’t?? One of my all time favorite pasta dishes to make is linguini with clams, I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve made this dish. It is one of those pastas that is so satisfying, yet doesn’t leave you feeling like you need to unbutton your pants when you finish (which most pasta dishes make me do). I do my linguini with clams in a white wine lemon sauce, which I add pancetta too. The pancetta gives this dish such a unique smokey flavor and the touch of heavy cream at the end makes this sauce so velvety… it is truly a great recipe. I serve my pasta with a toasted baguette; this is a must. The warm bread soaks up all the garlicky broth, which I have to say might be the best bite of the whole dish. This recipe is so fast and easy to prepare, I highly recommend it as a week night staple in most households.
